Our Patron

St. Anselm came form a noble Lombard family and was born in Aosta in the Italian Alps. His mother was a good and pious
woman, but after her death, his father’s violence and harshness finally caused Anselm to flee to France. Here after several years of wandering, he become a Benedictine monk in 1060 at Bee. Within three years he was made Prior and after another 15 years, very reluctantly, Abbot. As Abbot, St. Anselm had to cross over to England from time to time in connection with his abbey’s English properties, and there he became known and highly esteemed for his virtues and fearless zeal. So much so that in 1099 he was made the Archbishop of Canterbury in the hope that he would be able to cope with the encroachments of king William, the Red. Many important writings of St. Anselm who was considered the greatest intellect of his age and a pattern for all theologians were composed during his two banishments from England.
They earned him the title: Father of Scholasticism and Doctor of the Universal Church (1720) on account of the deep and lasting influence which his thinking has had on philosophy and theology.
His feast falls on April 21st and it is a regular feature for the school to celebrate the feast of its Patron.
ST. ANSELM, PRAY FOR US!
