St. Keverne of Cornwall

18 November

6th century. Saint Keverne is associated with Saint Kieran (f.d. March 5) or Pyran (f.d. March 5). He may have been a friend of the latter or may indeed be the same person (Benedictines).

The Five parishes of St Anthony, Manaccan, St Martin, St Mawgan and St Keverne form that part of the Lizard Peninsula known as the Meneage, "the land of Monks". The stones on the window ledges in the North Aisle are thought to have come from the ruins of the monastery. < >
