Just as Saul became Paul the apostle so also Prince Vladimir (died 1015) became the zealous Christian upon his conversions. He invited all his people to be baptized in the waters of Dnieper River in 989 A.D.
Vladimir set about on the work of building churches. He established schools where Christian faith could be taught. Bishops and priests went out spreading the gospel into the far reaches of Slav territory. The rich Byzantine culture came to bring new life to the slaves.
Prince Vladimir died July 15, 1015 A.D. and the people mourned their beloved monarch. He came to be known in the church as the "equal of the apostles". He is referred to as a second St. Paul. In his search for truth, he found the pearl of great price, Jesus Christ.
Saint Vladimir ranks with the greatest missionaries who have gone "to teach all nations". We are honored to learn in a school named for such a great missionary.
