The Church has a joint dedication to Our Lady of the Portal & St. Piran. Our Lady of the Portal is an unusual dedication and reflects the discovery that in mediaeval times, there was a Guild of Our Lady of the Portal, with a special duty of maintaining a bridge over one of the rivers at the entrance of Truro. No one is sure where this bridge was, but the Church is thought to be built on land formerly owned by the Guild. St. Piran is one of the early Saints of Cornwall. He is reputed to have sailed here from Ireland as a missionary (on a millstone if you believe the legend) and he is the patron saint of tin miners
