St Wolfgang of Regensburg

St Wolfgang was born into Royalty and received a good education; attending the celebrated monastic school of Reichenau Abbey.

Initially, St Wolfgang became a teacher at the Cathedral School of Trier before joining the Benedictines.

St Wolfgang was ordained a Priest by St Ulrich and afterwards, he travelled to Hungary as a missionary to help evangelise the people following a long succession of wars. In 972, St Wolfgang was appointed Bishop of Regensburg and became a greatly respected Pastor.
