Celebrating St Gall

 

BBC Broadcast 15th January 2012

In January 2012 St Gall’s was preparing for a year of celebrating it’s patron Saint - Gall - or Gallus as he is known in Switzerland. Having travelled from Bangor Abbey with Columbanus Gall had settled on the shores of Lake Constance and made his home there. In the last number of years we have as a parish welcomed many visitors to our church from Switzerland - modern day pilgrims looking to revisit Bangor - the place Gall called home. Our broadcast allowed us to share something of the story and the history with a wide audience. Have a listen! Enjoy!
