Our Class Saint
St Christopher. The Patron Saint of Travellers. Feast day is 25th July
St Christopher's life is surrounded by many amazing stories. Christopher wanted to serve the greatest King on Earth. His travels led him to kings, rulers and even the Devil before learning about Jesus. Christopher served Jesus by helping guide boats and people across a dangerous river. One day a small boy asked Christopher to help him cross. The child grew heavier and heavier and Christopher barely made it to the other side. The boy revealed that he was Christ and that Christopher was to help him carry the burdens of the world. Christopher then went and taught many people about Jesus.
St Christopher, pray for us.
