How We Got our Name

St. David’s is the patron saint of Wales.  Living in the 6th century, David was a quiet and scholarly monk who founded many monasteries and was eventually elected bishop.  The topography of Kinnelon area reminded some of the founding parish members of the parish of the topography of Wales with its rolling hills and abundant streams and lakes.  So we were named after a saint closely associated with that country.

A number of our members have visited our namesake cathedral in St. David’s, Wales (the smallest city in Britain), which is among the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe.  To learn more about this cathedral we encourage you to visit http://www.castlewales.com/stdavid.html
