St Margaret’s Day

Margret was the daughter of a noble man. She was forced to marry against her will. Rather than consummate her marriage. She fled on her wedding night, disguised as a man.

Still in the disguise of a man, she took on the name of Pelagius & entered a monastery. Pelagius led a pure life & was made priest in charge.

All was going well, until a Nun in a nearby Convent became pregnant!

Pelagius was blamed for the dirty deed of taking the nun’s chastity. As a punishment he/she was walled up left until dead!

Later the brickwork was taken down, & every one got a bit of shock! Especially those who accused Pelagius & ordered the punishment.
