Almighty and everlasting God,
who called your servant Ninian to preach the gospel
      to the people of northern Britain:
raise up in this and every land
heralds and evangelists of your kingdom,
that your Church may make known the immeasurable riches
      of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Saint Ninian (lifetime uncertain) is a   saint first mentioned in the eighth century as being an early missionary among the Pictish peoples of what is now Scotland. For this reason he is known as the Apostle to the Southern Picts, and there are numerous dedications to him in those parts of Scotland with a Pictish heritage, throughout the Scottish Lowlands, and in parts of Northern England with a Northumbrian heritage. In Scotland, Ninian is also known as Ringan, and as Trynnian in Northern England.

One thought on “Ninian

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this! I married in the Lowlands, as a Strahan (soon to change her name in marriage). I bought a cute red cloak for a baby we hoped to adopt with a hood, but nowhere near as wonderful as St. Ninian’s cloak.
