Commemoration day: 23rd April

Saint George is known as one of the fourteen Holy Helpers. George was born in Cappadocia (Turkey) and was a soldier of the Emperor Diocletian. The Emperor appreciated him very much because of his bravery. However, when the Emperor Diocletian issued a decree for the persecution of Christians, George abandoned the knightly order and declared himself a Christian. The Emperor could not accept this and arrested George. He tortured and tormented George, but the Christina endured all the humiliation and kept his faith. God gave George the strength to endure the pain and healed all his wounds at night. However, George was finally beheaded. He is also known as "the great martyr" because he had to suffer several martyrdoms until his death. The veneration of St. George spread rapidly and countless churches were built in his honor. Among the Greeks, George was a symbol of Christian bravery. A St. George's knighthood was founded and he became as well patron of England.

A legend tells about the soldier George, who could baptize 15.000 people in exchange for the death of the dragon, which bullied for years Cappadocia. Here comes the famous figure of Saint George  with knight slaying a dragon.
