Learn About Saint David
Saint David (known as Dewi Sant in the Welsh language) is the patron saint of Wales. He was a Celtic monk who lived in the 6th Century and was Archbishop of Wales. His influence is shown by the number of churches dedicated to him in Wales.
Legend says his mother, St Non, gave birth to him on a Pembrokeshire cliff top during a violent storm. David became a renowned preacher and founded many churches and religious communities - some believe he founded Glastonbury Abbey.
St David and his monks followed a simple, austere life. They ploughed the fields by hand, ate no meat and drank no beer.
St David’s most famous miracle took place when he was preaching to a large crowd in what is now the village of Llanddewi Brefi. When the large crowds could not see or hear him the ground on which he stood rose up to form a hill. A white dove, sent by God, settled on his shoulder. The white dove became his emblem.
St David died on 1st March, now St David’s Day, and was buried at the site of St David’s Cathedral in what is now the city of St David’s.
