St. Boniface

St. Boniface was born in England in the 670s. He became a Benedictine monk and went to Germany as a missionary. He destroyed the worship sites of non-believers and built churches. As an archbishop, he reformed churches and founded or restored a few dioceses. He went to Holland to evangelize the people. There in 754 he was captured, along with St. Adaler, St. Eoban and a number of his followers, by non-believers and was killed for his faith. St. Boniface is patron saint of brewers and tailors.
