“The Collegiate Church of St Paul’s Shipwreck has a relic containing a piece of St Paul’s wrist bone and a piece of the pillar on which St Paul is supposed to have been beheaded.” writes Fr Mark. ” A wooden statue of  St Paul carved in 1657 by Melchior Gafà was carried by local boys in procession to mark the Feast”.
