Born in the 4th Century in Turkey (Asia Minor) he became Bishop of Myra
and is honoured in both the Western and Eastern churches. As early as
the 6th Century a church was built in his honour in Constantinople.
Although little historical evidence is known of him he was loved for his
generosity which gave rise to the custom of gift giving in December
associated with him, hence the name Santa Claus for Saint Nicholas.
He is also associated with saving sailors from a violent shipwreck
during a storm in the Mediterranean and this is the image portrayed on
the banner. He is known as the patron saint of sailors and children.
Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey.
