From Rome: Making the British Empire Catholic

Sts. Andrea e Gregorio al Celio: It was from this spot atop Rome's Celian Hill, that St. Gregory the Great towards the beginning of the seventh century sent two groups of monks to evangelize England. Among the monks were St. Augustine, the first Archbishop of Canterbury, St. Lawrence, St. Mellitus, St. Justus, and St. Onorius, all succeeding archbishops of Canterbury, and St. Paulinus, first archbishop of York.
