Saint Boniface

Saint Boniface

The saint we know as Boniface was born around 680 in Devonshire, England and given the name Wynfrid. He was raised in Benedictine monasteries.

By 717, he was a renowned teacher and preacher, but gave up his work in response to a call to the mission field of northern Netherlands.

In Rome, Pope Gregory II renamed him Boniface. This is how he got his name. At Geismar, Boniface made a tremendous impression by destroying the great Oak of Thor, an object of pagan worship, without being harmed by ‘the gods.’

Boniface is called the “Apostle of Germany.” On June 5, 754, he and 30 companions were killed by non-Christians.
