Who Was St Breock?

St. Breock is one of the Celtic Saints of Wales, Cornwall and Brittany. His birth has been dated as A.D. 425 and his death as an old man in his nineties in A.D. 515. He was born in Cardiganshire on the west coast of Wales. He has given his name to a parish in Gloucestershire, St. Briavels and founded an important monastery in Saint Brieuc in Brittany. It was said of St. Breock that ‘ he sincerely loved all men, he respected those younger than himself and he made himself subject to all by serving all’.

These extracts from his life are reflected in our school song.
