      St. Schottin (Schotin, Scarthin), Hermit of Kilkenny
      -------------------------------------------
      6th century. While still a youth, Schotin left Ireland to become a
      disciple of Saint David in Wales. For many years after his return to
      Ireland he led the life of an anchorite at Mt. Mairge, Leix. He is said
      to have established a school for boys at Kilkenny (Benedictines).

      young./ Holy Schotin, in life thou didst serve Christ./ Wherefore , O
      Saint intercede that by following thee in all piety and Godly quiet,/ we
      may attain eternal life.


      St. Diman Dubh of Connor, Bishop
      --------------------------------------------------
      (also known as Dimas, Dima)
      Died 658. Diman Dubh (Diman the Black) was a monk under Saint Columba,
      and afterwards abbot and bishop of Connor. He is one of the prelates to
      whom the Roman Church, after the death of Pope Honorius in 640,
      addressed the epistle on the paschal controversy and on Pelagianism
      (Benedictines).


      St. Edeyrn (Edern), Hermit
      -------------------------------------
      6th century. He is the patron saint of a church in Brittany. Tradition
      describes him as a Briton, associating him with King Arthur, and making
      him end his days as a hermit in Armorica (Benedictines). Saint Edeyrn is
      depicted in art as a hermit riding on a stag. He is venerated in
      Brittany (Roeder).


      St. Eigrad
      --------------
      6th century. Saint Eigrad, a brother of Saint Samson, was trained by
      Saint Illtyd, and founded a church in Anglesey (Benedictines).


      St. Hywyn (Owen, Ewen) of Aberdaron
      -------------------------------------------------------
      Died after 516. Saint Hywyn was probably a companion of Saint Cadfan on
      his return journey from Brittany in 516 to Cornwall and Wales. He is
      said to have been the founder of Aberdaron in Carnarvonshire. Several
      churches in western England known as Saint Owen's or Saint Ewen's
      possibly have Hywyn for their titular saint (Benedictines).



      St. Melanius of Rennes, Bishop
      ----------------------------------------------
      Died c. 530. With Saint Remi, Melanius shares the title of Apostle of
      France. Melanius, a Breton by birth, was bishop of Rennes during the
      critical time when the Franks were overrunning Gaul. He is said to have
      almost completely succeeded in abolishing idolatry from his diocese and
      was highly revered by King Clovis (Benedictines, Encyclopaedia). In art,
      Saint Melanius is depicted with a ship carrying his corpse sailing
      upstream. Sometimes the bishop stands on a devil or he is shown driving
      out the devil (Roeder).


      St. Merinus the Hermit
      ---------------------------
      6th century. A disciple of Dunawd of Bangor (Ireland), Merinus is the
      titular saint of churches in Wales and Brittany (Benedictines).


      St. Peter of Canterbury, Abbot
      -------------------------------------------
      Died c. 606-608; feast at Saint Augustine's in Canterbury is kept on
      December 30. Saint Peter was a monk at Saint Andrew's Monastery in Rome
      until, in 596, he was sent by Pope Saint Gregory the Great to England
      with the first group of missionaries under Saint Augustine of
      Canterbury. In 602, Peter became the first abbot of SS. Peter and Paul
      (afterwards Saint Augustine's) at Canterbury.

      Saint Peter was probably the monk delegated by Augustine to take news to
      the pope of the first Anglo-Saxon conversions. He then brought back
      Saint Gregory's replies to Augustine's questions. Later Peter was
      dispatched on a mission to Gaul, but was drowned in the English Channel
      at Ambleteuse (Amfleet) near Boulogne. According to the Venerable Bede,
      the local inhabitants buried him in an "unworthy place" but, as the
      result of a prodigy of mysterious light appearing over his grave at
      night, translated his relics to a church in Boulogne with suitable
      honour (Benedictines, Delaney, Farmer).

              St. Schottin (Schotin, Scarthin), Hermit of Kilkenny
              -------------------------------------------
              6th century. While still a youth, Schotin left Ireland to become a
              disciple of Saint David in Wales. For many years after his return to
              Ireland he led the life of an anchorite at Mt. Mairge, Leix. He is said
              to have established a school for boys at Kilkenny (Benedictines).

              young./ Holy Schotin, in life thou didst serve Christ./ Wherefore , O
              Saint intercede that by following thee in all piety and Godly quiet,/ we
              may attain eternal life.


              St. Diman Dubh of Connor, Bishop
              --------------------------------------------------
              (also known as Dimas, Dima)
              Died 658. Diman Dubh (Diman the Black) was a monk under Saint Columba,
              and afterwards abbot and bishop of Connor. He is one of the prelates to
              whom the Roman Church, after the death of Pope Honorius in 640,
              addressed the epistle on the paschal controversy and on Pelagianism
              (Benedictines).


              St. Edeyrn (Edern), Hermit
              -------------------------------------
              6th century. He is the patron saint of a church in Brittany. Tradition
              describes him as a Briton, associating him with King Arthur, and making
              him end his days as a hermit in Armorica (Benedictines). Saint Edeyrn is
              depicted in art as a hermit riding on a stag. He is venerated in
              Brittany (Roeder).


              St. Eigrad
              --------------
              6th century. Saint Eigrad, a brother of Saint Samson, was trained by
              Saint Illtyd, and founded a church in Anglesey (Benedictines).


              St. Hywyn (Owen, Ewen) of Aberdaron
              -------------------------------------------------------
              Died after 516. Saint Hywyn was probably a companion of Saint Cadfan on
              his return journey from Brittany in 516 to Cornwall and Wales. He is
              said to have been the founder of Aberdaron in Carnarvonshire. Several
              churches in western England known as Saint Owen's or Saint Ewen's
              possibly have Hywyn for their titular saint (Benedictines).



              St. Melanius of Rennes, Bishop
              ----------------------------------------------
              Died c. 530. With Saint Remi, Melanius shares the title of Apostle of
              France. Melanius, a Breton by birth, was bishop of Rennes during the
              critical time when the Franks were overrunning Gaul. He is said to have
              almost completely succeeded in abolishing idolatry from his diocese and
              was highly revered by King Clovis (Benedictines, Encyclopaedia). In art,
              Saint Melanius is depicted with a ship carrying his corpse sailing
              upstream. Sometimes the bishop stands on a devil or he is shown driving
              out the devil (Roeder).


              St. Merinus the Hermit
              ---------------------------
              6th century. A disciple of Dunawd of Bangor (Ireland), Merinus is the
              titular saint of churches in Wales and Brittany (Benedictines).


              St. Peter of Canterbury, Abbot
              -------------------------------------------
              Died c. 606-608; feast at Saint Augustine's in Canterbury is kept on
              December 30. Saint Peter was a monk at Saint Andrew's Monastery in Rome
              until, in 596, he was sent by Pope Saint Gregory the Great to England
              with the first group of missionaries under Saint Augustine of
              Canterbury. In 602, Peter became the first abbot of SS. Peter and Paul
              (afterwards Saint Augustine's) at Canterbury.

              Saint Peter was probably the monk delegated by Augustine to take news to
              the pope of the first Anglo-Saxon conversions. He then brought back
              Saint Gregory's replies to Augustine's questions. Later Peter was
              dispatched on a mission to Gaul, but was drowned in the English Channel
              at Ambleteuse (Amfleet) near Boulogne. According to the Venerable Bede,
              the local inhabitants buried him in an "unworthy place" but, as the
              result of a prodigy of mysterious light appearing over his grave at
              night, translated his relics to a church in Boulogne with suitable
              honour (Benedictines, Delaney, Farmer).
