St. Austell, St. Ives, St. Minver, Perranporth … in Cornwall, saints are everywhere! Towns and villages are named after churches founded by them or dedicated to their memory.
Saint Piran is the patron saint of Cornwall and he travelled through Wales, Cornwall and Brittany, spreading the Christian faith and starting churches. It is thought that he arrived in Cornwall at Perranporth (Perran’s Port), where he founded his first church and monastery in the sand hills at Perranzabuloe (Perran in the Sands).
His shrine at Perranzabuloe was a popular place of pilgrimage in the Middle Ages. Saint Piran’s bones, bishop’s crosier (staff) and copper bell were preserved there. St. Piran became the patron saint of tinners and miners, and his feast day on 5th March was celebrated in Cornwall by receiving a day off from work and a bonus of money.
The Cornish flag is known as Saint Piran’s Cross – a white cross over a black background, symbolising the Christian faith shining over lies, good over evil.
Although St. Piran is generally recognised as the Patron Saint of Cornwall, Saint Michael and Saint Petroc also have some claim to this title.
