Year 1

St Thomas

St Thomas was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus and lived in the 1st Century CE. St Thomas is famous for having doubted the Resurrection of Jesus and for demanding physical proof of the wounds of Christ’s Crucifixion. Although little is certain about his life, Christian tradition holds that St Thomas was the first missionary to India.

St. George

We know very little about St George’s life. It is thought that he was a Roman soldier who was tortured and then martyred by Emperor Diocletian when he refused to renounce his Christian faith. He became one of the most venerated saints in Christianity, particularly as a military saint during the Crusades.
