St Gregory the Great’s feast day is September 3rd. He was a Pope from AD 590 to 604. He was the first pope who had been a monk previously as well as a diplomat. He was also known as a highly competent administrator and is known for his work on the liturgy and reorganisation of the entire church. Gregory was the first to send Christian missionaries to Britain and under his papacy the Church grew in influence and power throughout Europe. Gregory also instituted a system of distributing food and alms to the poor of Rome.
