St. Theodore of Tarsus and Canterbury is the patron saint of the Antiochian Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom and Ireland; that is of the Deanery and the Cathedral parish of St. George in London.  As a "son of Antioch" coming from Tarsus, the saint is notable for putting the organisation and life of the Church in these isles on a proper footing in the 7th Century.  His contribution and legacy has been immense.  He remains an inspirational figure for the Church's mission today.
