If celebrated as a Lesser Festival, Common of Missionaries, page 503

Kentigern, also known affectionately as Mungo, which means 'darling', is reputed to have been the grandson of a British prince in southern Scotland and to have attended a monastic school at Culross. The story goes that he became a missionary to the Britons living in Strathclyde and was elected their bishop. Following the persecution of Christians, he fled to Wales, but eventually returned to Strathclyde where he continued his work of evangelism. He died in the year 603 and his tomb is in St Mungo's Cathedral in Glasgow.
