      St. Adalgis of Novara, Priest Hermit
      (also known as Adelgis, Algise, Algis)
      -------------------------------------------------
      Died c. 686. Adalgis, an Irish monk and disciple of Saint Fursey
      (f.d.January 16), holds a place in the folklore of northern and eastern
      France. He settled with his brothers Saints Gobain (f.d. June 20) and
      Etto (f.d. July 10) in the forest of Thierache and became one of the
      apostles of Picardy. Venturing forth from their little cell, known as
      Cellula, they evangelized in the area around Arras and Laon. The
      village of Saint-Algis grew up around the small monastery he founded.

      About 970, the Irish Abbot Forannan translated the relics of Saint
      Adalgis to the monastery church of Saint Michael in
      Thierache.(Benedictines, D'Arcy, Encyclopaedia, Fitzpatrick, Gougaud,
      Kenney, O'Hanlon, Montague).


      St. Oda the Good, Archbishop of Canterbury
      --------------------------------------------------------
      Born in East Anglia; died 959. Born of Danish parents in England, Oda
      became bishop of Ramsbury (Wessex). He was with King Athelstand when the
      king defeated the Danes, Scots, and Northumbrians at the Battle of
      Brunanburh in 937. In 942, he became archbishop of Canterbury. He tried
      to escape consecration by declaring that, unlike previous archbishops,
      he was not
      a monk. He only consented to accept the dignity after he had received
      the Benedictine habit from the hands of the abbot of Fleury-sur-Loire in
      France (reformed by another Saint Odo--of Cluny, who had died in 942).

      Oda played an active role in secular as well as ecclesiastical affairs
      during the reigns of Kings Edmund and Edgar and paved the way for
      monastic restoration under SS. Dunstan, Oswald (Oda's nephew), and
      Ethelwold. He is reputed to have performed several miracles (Attwater,
      Benedictines, Delaney, Encyclopaedia).


      St. Bodfan (Bobouan)
      ------------------------------
      7th century. Tradition says that Saint Bodfan, his father, and other
      relatives embraced the religious life after Beaumaris Bay was formed by
      a huge inundation. He is the patron saint of Abern in Carnarvonshire
      (Benedictines).Bodfan (Bobouan)
