Our Patron Saint is Aidan of Lindisfarne who restored Christianity to Northumbria in the 7th Century at the request of King Oswald.
St Aidan's missionary method was to walk the lanes, talk to all the people he met and interest them in the faith if he could. His monks visited and revisited the villages where he sowed the seeds and in time local Christian communities were formed. For more about Aidan's story visit here or Wikipedia
The picture was taken on Lindisfarne (Holy Island) in Northumberland.
