St Mungo
(c. 520-612)

Patron saint of Glasgow

Kentigern, nicknamed Mungo (meaning ‘dear friend’), was the son of St Thenew and was brought up under the influence of St Serf. He became a missionary, building on the Christian legacy left in southern Scotland by the Romans and preaching in Strathclyde, Cumbria and Wales, meeting St David and St Columba on his travels. He was buried in his cathedral in Glasgow and as the city’s patron saint, appears on its arms along with pictorial mementoes of his miracles.
