Patron Saint of the British Jesuit Province.
Born in the shadow of St. Paul's Cathedral, London
he was educated at Christ's Hospital School and Oxford University becoming a
tutor and Fellow there. He impressed Queen Elizabeth I when he made
an address to her. Lord Burghley decribed him as 'one of the diamonds of
England'. He took orders as a Deacon in the Anglican Church.
Campion gave up his position and feted lifestyle
when he felt called to become a Catholic, travelling first to Dublin and Douai.
He became a Jesuit in Rome & taught in Prague before he was ordained
Campion travelled in disguise to England in 1580 in
support of the Jesuit mission to England. He preached and ministered to
Catholics secretly and wrote in support of the Faith before his arrest and
torture in the Tower of

Tyburn with Fr. Alexander Bryant SJ & Fr. Ralph Sherwin.
Many schools and colleges are named in his honour
recognising his faith and his academic prowess as student and teacher.
