The Celtic Church is a subject of much intrigue around the world. We have Saint Patrick and Saint Columba, and even Christ’s Uncle Joseph of Arimathea, and other first Century Saints who led Britain, like St. Aristobulus, St. Andrew, St. Paul, and St. Philip [some of the most ancient forefathers of the Celtic Orthodox Church]. We have a list of 200 more Celtic British Saints who led the church centuries before the Roman Saxon St. Augustine came to England. All of which are listed in the official histories of the Orthodox church.
These have brought us all much encouragement and inspiration in Christ. Most of all we see what a wonderful God we serve, that our God, the God of Israel, is a true and living God who honors His covenants with His bride called Christian Israel.

It was actually from the time of Jeremiah the Prophet that the Irish Celtic church began to take hold. His dated grave remains part of the history of Ireland today. He had successfully transplanted the Kingdom of Israel to the British Isles, just as God had foretold to him. David’s literal throne is a part of Irish, Scottish and English history that is known as the stone of scone. The many Hebrew practices remaining so long in the Celtic lands bears witness to this Israelite heritage. – His Eminence ++ Dr. Stephen Michael, Primace, OCC.
