"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6) Years ago, His Eminence Metropolitan +PHILIP designated October as a time to focus on the youth of the Church by celebrating their accomplishments and encouraging them to take up an active role in building up the community of believers. Much has been said lately about the absence of young adults from parish life. We wrote about this last month, and we are continuing to analyze this phenomenon while making efforts to stem this tide here at St. George. We know this trend is not specific to our parish.
Gall was born in Ireland in 540 to wealthy Christian parents, his older brother was the monk Saint Deicolus. Gall’s parents sent him to the Monastery of Bangor for his education. There he embraced the ascetical life and became a monk like his brother. The two brothers were among the twelve monks who traveled with their spiritual father St. Columbanus as missionaries to Gaul [France].
