      * St. Germanus of Normandy
      * St. Gluvias of Cornwall
      * St. Neachtain
      * St. Ultan of Peronne

      St. Gennys
      ---------------
      Date unknown. Saint Gennys is often confused with Saint Genesius of
      Arles, but the patron of Cornwall has his own feast today, which may
      point to the fact that he is a different individual and an obscure,
      local founder. He may more properly be identified with Saint Genesius
      the Martyr, whose head was translated on July 19 to Lismore. To add to
      the confusion, the famous Germanus of Auxerre is also known as Gennys or
      Genewys (Benedictines, Farmer).


      St. Germanus (Germaine) of Normandy, Bishop Martyr
      -------------------------------------------------------
      Died c. 460. It may be hard to believe that someone named Germanus of
      Normandy originated either in Ireland or Wales, but it is true. Today's
      saint was converted by Saint Germanus of Auxerre, whose name he took,
      when the bishop was visiting Britain. Today's saint worked as a bishop
      with Saint Patrick and is alleged to have evangelized in Wales, Spain,
      Gaul, and the Isle of Man. Some regard Germanus as the Apostle of the
      Isle of Man. He was martyred in Normandy (Benedictines, Montague).


      St. Gluvias (Glywys)
      ---------------------------
      6th century. Saint Gluvias may have been sent to Cornwall by his
      brother, Saint Cadoc of Llancarfan. There he laid the foundation for a
      monastery and a parish commemorates his name (Benedictines).

      The church stands on the site of the hermitage of its patron, Gluvias,
      who belongs to that great tide of saints which swept down from Wales and
      overspilled into Brittany. He is the brother of S.Cadoc, which would
      make him the son of St.Woolos of Newport and St.Gladys, one of the
      daughters of Brychan. St.Petroc, the founder of Padstow and Bodmin, was
      uncle to Cadoc and Gluvias, and St.Keyne would have been their great
      aunt. St.Keyne gives her name to Keynsham between Bristol and Bath and
      to the parish in Cornwall between Looe and Liskeard.

      These family connections are a feature of the Celtic saints, but of
      St.Gluvias himself we know little except that he chose this fertile
      valley for his retreat, famous for its flowers as well as its granite.
      His church looks down over Penryn, which lies at the side of Falmouth,
      and although it is probably older and more distinguished than its
      neighbour, it has not grown so large. It now has no church of its own,
      but once it was a famous place of learning, receiving scholars from
      Oxford to join the canons of its famous Glasney College, founded by
      Bishop Bronescombe. It had a great collegiate church, dedicated to
      St.Thomas of Canterbury, but there are few traces of the church and
      college buildings, which were once "strongly walled".

      Glasney College might have become a university if it had survived the
      sixteenth century, but during the middle ages it had a great influence
      on the life of the Church in Cornwall, and some of the miracle plays in
      Cornish, which were composed there, are extant. Among some of the
      manuscripts that have survived is a reference to St.Gluvias as a martyr,
      but there is no indication of the manner in which he glorified Our Lord
      by his death (Bowen, John, Mee).

      Troparion of St Gluvias Tone 2
      O glorious Father Gluvias,/ thou didst bring the light of Christ to
      Cornwall/ while thy brother holy Cadoc enlightened Wales./ As thou dost
      intercede for all mankind,/ pray to Christ our God to grant us His great
      mercy.


      St. Neachtain
      -------------------
      5th century. Saint Neachtain was present at the death of his near
      relative Saint Patrick of Ireland (Benedictines).


      St. Ultan of Peronne, Abbot Bishop
      --------------------------------------
      Died c. 686. Ultan, an Irish monk like his brothers Saints Fursey and
      Foillan, went with them on a missionary journey to East Anglia. There,
      with Fursey, he founded Burghcastle Monastery near Yarmouth but migrated
      to France and the Abbey of Saint-Quentin, then to Belgium, to escape
      raiding Mercians. His brother Foillan built and became abbot of Fosses
      Monastery on land given to him by Blessed Itta and her daughter Saint
      Gertrude of Nivelles. During this time Ultan was chaplain to Gertrude's
      convent and taught them chant. He succeeded his brother in the abbacy at
      Fosses and later he became abbot of a monastery at Perrone, where he
      died. He was buried in Fosses Abbey (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney,
      Montague).

        St. Gennys
        ---------------
        Date unknown. Saint Gennys is often confused with Saint Genesius of
        Arles, but the patron of Cornwall has his own feast today, which may
        point to the fact that he is a different individual and an obscure,

        the confusion, the famous Germanus of Auxerre is also known as Gennys or
        Genewys (Benedictines, Farmer).


        Saint Genny's Church in Cornwall
        http://homepages.tesco.net/~k.wasley/StGennys.htm

        The church is situated in a dell amongst the high cliffs of the North
        Cornish Coast that look over the ever-surging sea- High Cliff to the
        south west towering over "The Haven" is 730 ft high and the tallest in
        Britain.

        This secluded isolated spot so solitary for a parish church is because
        its origins go back to the years of the Celtic Church. Sometime in the
        mid 7th Century a Celtic Monk (hermit) arrived here, on foot or by boat,
        and chose our site for its solitude and its ready supply of water.

        The locals must have been very quickly attracted to the "Holy Man" and
        he in due time taught them the Christian message and baptised them in
        his source of water which became known as "The Holy Well" so the site
        was established as the Holy Place in the locality. A stone cross set up
        close by & a tiny wooden hut for the priest or monk to live in. The
        services would be held in the open air.

        On the right hand -side of the path that leads to the church the green
        drops away steeply. A careful look down and across, or a jaunt over the
        grass will reveal an old well - its is not so long ago the water from
        here was still on domestic use - however this is the spot or very close
        to it where the Holy Well of St Gennys was located. Here from the 600's
        people have been baptised.

        926 - After King Athelstan's final conquest of Cornwall, it is almost
        certain a small Saxon church was built on this site and it is possible
        at this point the dedication to St Genesius probably originates.

            St. Gennys
            ---------------
            Date unknown. Saint Gennys is often confused with Saint Genesius of
            Arles, but the patron of Cornwall has his own feast today, which may
            point to the fact that he is a different individual and an obscure,
            local founder. He may more properly be identified with Saint Genesius
            the Martyr, whose head was translated on July 19 to Lismore. To add to
            the confusion, the famous Germanus of Auxerre is also known as Gennys or
            Genewys (Benedictines, Farmer).


            Saint Genny's Church in Cornwall
            http://homepages.tesco.net/~k.wasley/StGennys.htm

            The church is situated in a dell amongst the high cliffs of the North
            Cornish Coast that look over the ever-surging sea- High Cliff to the
            south west towering over "The Haven" is 730 ft high and the tallest in
            Britain.

            This secluded isolated spot so solitary for a parish church is because
            its origins go back to the years of the Celtic Church. Sometime in the
            mid 7th Century a Celtic Monk (hermit) arrived here, on foot or by boat,
            and chose our site for its solitude and its ready supply of water.

            The locals must have been very quickly attracted to the "Holy Man" and
            he in due time taught them the Christian message and baptised them in
            his source of water which became known as "The Holy Well" so the site
            was established as the Holy Place in the locality. A stone cross set up
            close by & a tiny wooden hut for the priest or monk to live in. The
            services would be held in the open air.

            On the right hand -side of the path that leads to the church the green
            drops away steeply. A careful look down and across, or a jaunt over the
            grass will reveal an old well - its is not so long ago the water from
            here was still on domestic use - however this is the spot or very close
            to it where the Holy Well of St Gennys was located. Here from the 600's
            people have been baptised.

            926 - After King Athelstan's final conquest of Cornwall, it is almost
            certain a small Saxon church was built on this site and it is possible
            at this point the dedication to St Genesius probably originates.




            St. Germanus (Germaine) of Normandy, Bishop Martyr
            -------------------------------------------------------
            Died c. 460. It may be hard to believe that someone named Germanus of
            Normandy originated either in Ireland or Wales, but it is true. Today's
            saint was converted by Saint Germanus of Auxerre, whose name he took,
            when the bishop was visiting Britain. Today's saint worked as a bishop
            with Saint Patrick and is alleged to have evangelized in Wales, Spain,
            Gaul, and the Isle of Man. Some regard Germanus as the Apostle of the
            Isle of Man. He was martyred in Normandy (Benedictines, Montague).


            St. Gluvias (Glywys)
            ---------------------------
            6th century. Saint Gluvias may have been sent to Cornwall by his
            brother, Saint Cadoc of Llancarfan. There he laid the foundation for a
            monastery and a parish commemorates his name (Benedictines).

            The church stands on the site of the hermitage of its patron, Gluvias,
            who belongs to that great tide of saints which swept down from Wales and
            overspilled into Brittany. He is the brother of S.Cadoc, which would
            make him the son of St.Woolos of Newport and St.Gladys, one of the
            daughters of Brychan. St.Petroc, the founder of Padstow and Bodmin, was
            uncle to Cadoc and Gluvias, and St.Keyne would have been their great
            aunt. St.Keyne gives her name to Keynsham between Bristol and Bath and
            to the parish in Cornwall between Looe and Liskeard.

            These family connections are a feature of the Celtic saints, but of
            St.Gluvias himself we know little except that he chose this fertile
            valley for his retreat, famous for its flowers as well as its granite.
            His church looks down over Penryn, which lies at the side of Falmouth,
            and although it is probably older and more distinguished than its
            neighbour, it has not grown so large. It now has no church of its own,
            but once it was a famous place of learning, receiving scholars from
            Oxford to join the canons of its famous Glasney College, founded by
            Bishop Bronescombe. It had a great collegiate church, dedicated to
            St.Thomas of Canterbury, but there are few traces of the church and
            college buildings, which were once "strongly walled".

            Glasney College might have become a university if it had survived the
            sixteenth century, but during the middle ages it had a great influence
            on the life of the Church in Cornwall, and some of the miracle plays in
            Cornish, which were composed there, are extant. Among some of the
            manuscripts that have survived is a reference to St.Gluvias as a martyr,
            but there is no indication of the manner in which he glorified Our Lord
            by his death (Bowen, John, Mee).

            "The Saints of Cornwall" - Catherine Rachel John.

            "The King's England - Cornwall" - Arthur Mee.


            The church of Saint Gluvias in Cornwall
            Present structure dates from1883, with sections from earlier centuries.
            http://homepages.tesco.net/~k.wasley/St_Gluvias.htm


            Troparion of St Gluvias Tone 2
            O glorious Father Gluvias,/ thou didst bring the light of Christ to
            Cornwall/ while thy brother holy Cadoc enlightened Wales./ As thou dost
            intercede for all mankind,/ pray to Christ our God to grant us His great
            mercy.


            St. Neachtain
            -------------------
            5th century. Saint Neachtain was present at the death of his near
            relative Saint Patrick of Ireland (Benedictines).


            St. Ultan of Peronne, Abbot Bishop
            --------------------------------------
            Died c. 686. Ultan, an Irish monk like his brothers Saints Fursey and
            Foillan, went with them on a missionary journey to East Anglia. There,
            with Fursey, he founded Burghcastle Monastery near Yarmouth but migrated
            to France and the Abbey of Saint-Quentin, then to Belgium, to escape
            raiding Mercians. His brother Foillan built and became abbot of Fosses
            Monastery on land given to him by Blessed Itta and her daughter Saint
            Gertrude of Nivelles. During this time Ultan was chaplain to Gertrude's
            convent and taught them chant. He succeeded his brother in the abbacy at
            Fosses and later he became abbot of a monastery at Perrone, where he
            died. He was buried in Fosses Abbey (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney,
            Montague).

                Cornish Coast that look over the ever-surging sea- High Cliff to the
                south west towering over "The Haven" is 730 ft high and the tallest in
                Britain.

                This secluded isolated spot so solitary for a parish church is because
                its origins go back to the years of the Celtic Church. Sometime in the
                mid 7th Century a Celtic Monk (hermit) arrived here, on foot or by boat,
                and chose our site for its solitude and its ready supply of water.

                The locals must have been very quickly attracted to the "Holy Man" and
                he in due time taught them the Christian message and baptised them in
                his source of water which became known as "The Holy Well" so the site
                was established as the Holy Place in the locality. A stone cross set up
                close by & a tiny wooden hut for the priest or monk to live in. The
                services would be held in the open air.

                On the right hand -side of the path that leads to the church the green
                drops away steeply. A careful look down and across, or a jaunt over the
                grass will reveal an old well - its is not so long ago the water from
                here was still on domestic use - however this is the spot or very close
                to it where the Holy Well of St Gennys was located. Here from the 600's
                people have been baptised.

                926 - After King Athelstan's final conquest of Cornwall, it is almost
                certain a small Saxon church was built on this site and it is possible
                at this point the dedication to St Genesius probably originates.




                St. Germanus (Germaine) of Normandy, Bishop Martyr
                -------------------------------------------------------
                Died c. 460. It may be hard to believe that someone named Germanus of
                Normandy originated either in Ireland or Wales, but it is true. Today's
                saint was converted by Saint Germanus of Auxerre, whose name he took,
                when the bishop was visiting Britain. Today's saint worked as a bishop
                with Saint Patrick and is alleged to have evangelized in Wales, Spain,
                Gaul, and the Isle of Man. Some regard Germanus as the Apostle of the
                Isle of Man. He was martyred in Normandy (Benedictines, Montague).


                St. Gluvias (Glywys)
                ---------------------------
                6th century. Saint Gluvias may have been sent to Cornwall by his
                brother, Saint Cadoc of Llancarfan. There he laid the foundation for a
                monastery and a parish commemorates his name (Benedictines).

                The church stands on the site of the hermitage of its patron, Gluvias,
                who belongs to that great tide of saints which swept down from Wales and
                overspilled into Brittany. He is the brother of S.Cadoc, which would
                make him the son of St.Woolos of Newport and St.Gladys, one of the
                daughters of Brychan. St.Petroc, the founder of Padstow and Bodmin, was
                uncle to Cadoc and Gluvias, and St.Keyne would have been their great
                aunt. St.Keyne gives her name to Keynsham between Bristol and Bath and
                to the parish in Cornwall between Looe and Liskeard.

                These family connections are a feature of the Celtic saints, but of
                St.Gluvias himself we know little except that he chose this fertile
                valley for his retreat, famous for its flowers as well as its granite.
                His church looks down over Penryn, which lies at the side of Falmouth,
                and although it is probably older and more distinguished than its
                neighbour, it has not grown so large. It now has no church of its own,
                but once it was a famous place of learning, receiving scholars from
                Oxford to join the canons of its famous Glasney College, founded by
                Bishop Bronescombe. It had a great collegiate church, dedicated to
                St.Thomas of Canterbury, but there are few traces of the church and
                college buildings, which were once "strongly walled".

                Glasney College might have become a university if it had survived the
                sixteenth century, but during the middle ages it had a great influence
                on the life of the Church in Cornwall, and some of the miracle plays in
                Cornish, which were composed there, are extant. Among some of the
                manuscripts that have survived is a reference to St.Gluvias as a martyr,
                but there is no indication of the manner in which he glorified Our Lord
                by his death (Bowen, John, Mee).

                The church of Saint Gluvias in Cornwall
                Present structure dates from1883, with sections from earlier centuries.

                Troparion of St Gluvias Tone 2
                O glorious Father Gluvias,/ thou didst bring the light of Christ to
                Cornwall/ while thy brother holy Cadoc enlightened Wales./ As thou dost
                intercede for all mankind,/ pray to Christ our God to grant us His great
                mercy.


                St. Neachtain
                -------------------
                5th century. Saint Neachtain was present at the death of his near
                relative Saint Patrick of Ireland (Benedictines).


                St. Ultan of Peronne, Abbot Bishop
                --------------------------------------
                Died c. 686. Ultan, an Irish monk like his brothers Saints Fursey and
                Foillan, went with them on a missionary journey to East Anglia. There,
                with Fursey, he founded Burghcastle Monastery near Yarmouth but migrated
                to France and the Abbey of Saint-Quentin, then to Belgium, to escape
                raiding Mercians. His brother Foillan built and became abbot of Fosses
                Monastery on land given to him by Blessed Itta and her daughter Saint
                Gertrude of Nivelles. During this time Ultan was chaplain to Gertrude's
                convent and taught them chant. He succeeded his brother in the abbacy at
                Fosses and later he became abbot of a monastery at Perrone, where he
                died. He was buried in Fosses Abbey (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney,
                Montague).

                  St. Gennys
                  ---------------
                  Date unknown. Saint Gennys is often confused with Saint Genesius of
                  Arles, but the patron of Cornwall has his own feast today, which may
                  point to the fact that he is a different individual and an obscure,
                  local founder. He may more properly be identified with Saint Genesius
                  the Martyr, whose head was translated on July 19 to Lismore. To add to
                  the confusion, the famous Germanus of Auxerre is also known as Gennys or
                  Genewys (Benedictines, Farmer).


                  Saint Genny's Church in Cornwall
                  http://homepages.tesco.net/~k.wasley/StGennys.htm

                  The church is situated in a dell amongst the high cliffs of the North
                  Cornish Coast that look over the ever-surging sea- High Cliff to the

                    St. Gennys
                    ---------------
                    Date unknown. Saint Gennys is often confused with Saint Genesius of
                    Arles, but the patron of Cornwall has his own feast today, which may
                    point to the fact that he is a different individual and an obscure,
                    local founder. He may more properly be identified with Saint Genesius
                    the Martyr, whose head was translated on July 19 to Lismore. To add to
                    the confusion, the famous Germanus of Auxerre is also known as Gennys or
                    Genewys (Benedictines, Farmer).


                    Saint Genny's Church in Cornwall
                    http://homepages.tesco.net/~k.wasley/StGennys.htm

                    The church is situated in a dell amongst the high cliffs of the North
                    Cornish Coast that look over the ever-surging sea- High Cliff to the
                    south west towering over "The Haven" is 730 ft high and the tallest in
                    Britain.

                    This secluded isolated spot so solitary for a parish church is because
                    its origins go back to the years of the Celtic Church. Sometime in the
                    mid 7th Century a Celtic Monk (hermit) arrived here, on foot or by boat,
                    and chose our site for its solitude and its ready supply of water.

                    The locals must have been very quickly attracted to the "Holy Man" and
                    he in due time taught them the Christian message and baptised them in
                    his source of water which became known as "The Holy Well" so the site
                    was established as the Holy Place in the locality. A stone cross set up
                    close by & a tiny wooden hut for the priest or monk to live in. The
                    services would be held in the open air.

                    On the right hand -side of the path that leads to the church the green
                    drops away steeply. A careful look down and across, or a jaunt over the
                    grass will reveal an old well - its is not so long ago the water from
                    here was still on domestic use - however this is the spot or very close
                    to it where the Holy Well of St Gennys was located. Here from the 600's
                    people have been baptised.

                    926 - After King Athelstan's final conquest of Cornwall, it is almost
                    certain a small Saxon church was built on this site and it is possible
                    at this point the dedication to St Genesius probably originates.




                    St. Germanus (Germaine) of Normandy, Bishop Martyr
                    -------------------------------------------------------
                    Died c. 460. It may be hard to believe that someone named Germanus of
                    Normandy originated either in Ireland or Wales, but it is true. Today's
                    saint was converted by Saint Germanus of Auxerre, whose name he took,
                    when the bishop was visiting Britain. Today's saint worked as a bishop
                    with Saint Patrick and is alleged to have evangelized in Wales, Spain,
                    Gaul, and the Isle of Man. Some regard Germanus as the Apostle of the
                    Isle of Man. He was martyred in Normandy (Benedictines, Montague).


                    St. Gluvias (Glywys)
                    ---------------------------
                    6th century. Saint Gluvias may have been sent to Cornwall by his
                    brother, Saint Cadoc of Llancarfan. There he laid the foundation for a
                    monastery and a parish commemorates his name (Benedictines).

                    The church stands on the site of the hermitage of its patron, Gluvias,
                    who belongs to that great tide of saints which swept down from Wales and
                    overspilled into Brittany. He is the brother of S.Cadoc, which would
                    make him the son of St.Woolos of Newport and St.Gladys, one of the
                    daughters of Brychan. St.Petroc, the founder of Padstow and Bodmin, was
                    uncle to Cadoc and Gluvias, and St.Keyne would have been their great
                    aunt. St.Keyne gives her name to Keynsham between Bristol and Bath and
                    to the parish in Cornwall between Looe and Liskeard.

                    These family connections are a feature of the Celtic saints, but of
                    St.Gluvias himself we know little except that he chose this fertile
                    valley for his retreat, famous for its flowers as well as its granite.
                    His church looks down over Penryn, which lies at the side of Falmouth,
                    and although it is probably older and more distinguished than its
                    neighbour, it has not grown so large. It now has no church of its own,
                    but once it was a famous place of learning, receiving scholars from
                    Oxford to join the canons of its famous Glasney College, founded by
                    Bishop Bronescombe. It had a great collegiate church, dedicated to
                    St.Thomas of Canterbury, but there are few traces of the church and
                    college buildings, which were once "strongly walled".

                    Glasney College might have become a university if it had survived the
                    sixteenth century, but during the middle ages it had a great influence
                    on the life of the Church in Cornwall, and some of the miracle plays in
                    Cornish, which were composed there, are extant. Among some of the
                    manuscripts that have survived is a reference to St.Gluvias as a martyr,
                    but there is no indication of the manner in which he glorified Our Lord
                    by his death (Bowen, John, Mee).

                    The church of Saint Gluvias in Cornwall
                    Present structure dates from1883, with sections from earlier centuries.
                    http://homepages.tesco.net/~k.wasley/St_Gluvias.htm


                    Troparion of St Gluvias Tone 2
                    O glorious Father Gluvias,/ thou didst bring the light of Christ to
                    Cornwall/ while thy brother holy Cadoc enlightened Wales./ As thou dost
                    intercede for all mankind,/ pray to Christ our God to grant us His great
                    mercy.


                    St. Neachtain
                    -------------------
                    5th century. Saint Neachtain was present at the death of his near
                    relative Saint Patrick of Ireland (Benedictines).


                    St. Ultan of Peronne, Abbot Bishop
                    --------------------------------------
                    Died c. 686. Ultan, an Irish monk like his brothers Saints Fursey and
                    Foillan, went with them on a missionary journey to East Anglia. There,
                    with Fursey, he founded Burghcastle Monastery near Yarmouth but migrated
                    to France and the Abbey of Saint-Quentin, then to Belgium, to escape
                    raiding Mercians. His brother Foillan built and became abbot of Fosses
                    Monastery on land given to him by Blessed Itta and her daughter Saint
                    Gertrude of Nivelles. During this time Ultan was chaplain to Gertrude's
                    convent and taught them chant. He succeeded his brother in the abbacy at
                    Fosses and later he became abbot of a monastery at Perrone, where he
                    died. He was buried in Fosses Abbey (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney,
                    Montague).

                      St. Gennys
                      ---------------
                      Date unknown. Saint Gennys is often confused with Saint Genesius of
                      Arles, but the patron of Cornwall has his own feast today, which may

                      St. Germanus (Germaine) of Normandy, Bishop Martyr
                      -------------------------------------------------------
                      Died c. 460. It may be hard to believe that someone named Germanus of
                      Normandy originated either in Ireland or Wales, but it is true. Today's
                      saint was converted by Saint Germanus of Auxerre, whose name he took,
                      when the bishop was visiting Britain. Today's saint worked as a bishop
                      with Saint Patrick and is alleged to have evangelized in Wales, Spain,

                      Isle of Man. He was martyred in Normandy (Benedictines, Montague).


                      St. Gluvias (Glywys)
                      ---------------------------
                      6th century. Saint Gluvias may have been sent to Cornwall by his
                      brother, Saint Cadoc of Llancarfan. There he laid the foundation for a
                      monastery and a parish commemorates his name (Benedictines).

                      The church stands on the site of the hermitage of its patron, Gluvias,
                      who belongs to that great tide of saints which swept down from Wales and
                      overspilled into Brittany. He is the brother of S.Cadoc, which would
                      make him the son of St.Woolos of Newport and St.Gladys, one of the
                      daughters of Brychan. St.Petroc, the founder of Padstow and Bodmin, was
                      uncle to Cadoc and Gluvias, and St.Keyne would have been their great
                      aunt. St.Keyne gives her name to Keynsham between Bristol and Bath and
                      to the parish in Cornwall between Looe and Liskeard.

                      These family connections are a feature of the Celtic saints, but of

                      to France and the Abbey of Saint-Quentin, then to Belgium, to escape
                      raiding Mercians. His brother Foillan built and became abbot of Fosses
                      Monastery on land given to him by Blessed Itta and her daughter Saint
                      Gertrude of Nivelles. During this time Ultan was chaplain to Gertrude's
                      convent and taught them chant. He succeeded his brother in the abbacy at
                      Fosses and later he became abbot of a monastery at Perrone, where he
                      died. He was buried in Fosses Abbey (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney,
                      Montague).

                        St. Gennys
                        ---------------
                        Date unknown. Saint Gennys is often confused with Saint Genesius of
                        Arles, but the patron of Cornwall has his own feast today, which may
                        point to the fact that he is a different individual and an obscure,
                        local founder. He may more properly be identified with Saint Genesius
                        the Martyr, whose head was translated on July 19 to Lismore. To add to
                        the confusion, the famous Germanus of Auxerre is also known as Gennys or
                        Genewys (Benedictines, Farmer).


                        Saint Genny's Church in Cornwall
                        http://homepages.tesco.net/~k.wasley/StGennys.htm

                        The church is situated in a dell amongst the high cliffs of the North
                        Cornish Coast that look over the ever-surging sea- High Cliff to the
                        south west towering over "The Haven" is 730 ft high and the tallest in
                        Britain.

                        This secluded isolated spot so solitary for a parish church is because
                        its origins go back to the years of the Celtic Church. Sometime in the
                        mid 7th Century a Celtic Monk (hermit) arrived here, on foot or by boat,
                        and chose our site for its solitude and its ready supply of water.

                        The locals must have been very quickly attracted to the "Holy Man" and
                        he in due time taught them the Christian message and baptised them in
                        his source of water which became known as "The Holy Well" so the site
                        was established as the Holy Place in the locality. A stone cross set up
                        close by & a tiny wooden hut for the priest or monk to live in. The
                        services would be held in the open air.

                        On the right hand -side of the path that leads to the church the green
                        drops away steeply. A careful look down and across, or a jaunt over the
                        grass will reveal an old well - its is not so long ago the water from
                        here was still on domestic use - however this is the spot or very close
                        to it where the Holy Well of St Gennys was located. Here from the 600's
                        people have been baptised.

                        926 - After King Athelstan's final conquest of Cornwall, it is almost
                        certain a small Saxon church was built on this site and it is possible
                        at this point the dedication to St Genesius probably originates.




                        St. Germanus (Germaine) of Normandy, Bishop Martyr
                        -------------------------------------------------------
                        Died c. 460. It may be hard to believe that someone named Germanus of
                        Normandy originated either in Ireland or Wales, but it is true. Today's
                        saint was converted by Saint Germanus of Auxerre, whose name he took,
                        when the bishop was visiting Britain. Today's saint worked as a bishop
                        with Saint Patrick and is alleged to have evangelized in Wales, Spain,
                        Gaul, and the Isle of Man. Some regard Germanus as the Apostle of the
                        Isle of Man. He was martyred in Normandy (Benedictines, Montague).


                        St. Gluvias (Glywys)
                        ---------------------------
                        6th century. Saint Gluvias may have been sent to Cornwall by his
                        brother, Saint Cadoc of Llancarfan. There he laid the foundation for a
                        monastery and a parish commemorates his name (Benedictines).

                        The church stands on the site of the hermitage of its patron, Gluvias,
                        who belongs to that great tide of saints which swept down from Wales and
                        overspilled into Brittany. He is the brother of S.Cadoc, which would
                        make him the son of St.Woolos of Newport and St.Gladys, one of the
                        daughters of Brychan. St.Petroc, the founder of Padstow and Bodmin, was
                        uncle to Cadoc and Gluvias, and St.Keyne would have been their great
                        aunt. St.Keyne gives her name to Keynsham between Bristol and Bath and
                        to the parish in Cornwall between Looe and Liskeard.

                        These family connections are a feature of the Celtic saints, but of
                        St.Gluvias himself we know little except that he chose this fertile
                        valley for his retreat, famous for its flowers as well as its granite.
                        His church looks down over Penryn, which lies at the side of Falmouth,
                        and although it is probably older and more distinguished than its
                        neighbour, it has not grown so large. It now has no church of its own,
                        but once it was a famous place of learning, receiving scholars from
                        Oxford to join the canons of its famous Glasney College, founded by
                        Bishop Bronescombe. It had a great collegiate church, dedicated to
                        St.Thomas of Canterbury, but there are few traces of the church and
                        college buildings, which were once "strongly walled".

                        Glasney College might have become a university if it had survived the
                        sixteenth century, but during the middle ages it had a great influence
                        on the life of the Church in Cornwall, and some of the miracle plays in
                        Cornish, which were composed there, are extant. Among some of the
                        manuscripts that have survived is a reference to St.Gluvias as a martyr,
                        but there is no indication of the manner in which he glorified Our Lord
                        by his death (Bowen, John, Mee).

                        The church of Saint Gluvias in Cornwall
                        Present structure dates from1883, with sections from earlier centuries.

                        Troparion of St Gluvias Tone 2
                        O glorious Father Gluvias,/ thou didst bring the light of Christ to
                        Cornwall/ while thy brother holy Cadoc enlightened Wales./ As thou dost
                        intercede for all mankind,/ pray to Christ our God to grant us His great
                        mercy.


                        St. Neachtain
                        -------------------
                        5th century. Saint Neachtain was present at the death of his near
                        relative Saint Patrick of Ireland (Benedictines).


                        St. Ultan of Peronne, Abbot Bishop
                        --------------------------------------
                        Died c. 686. Ultan, an Irish monk like his brothers Saints Fursey and
                        Foillan, went with them on a missionary journey to East Anglia. There,
                        with Fursey, he founded Burghcastle Monastery near Yarmouth but migrated
                        to France and the Abbey of Saint-Quentin, then to Belgium, to escape
                        raiding Mercians. His brother Foillan built and became abbot of Fosses
                        Monastery on land given to him by Blessed Itta and her daughter Saint
                        Gertrude of Nivelles. During this time Ultan was chaplain to Gertrude's
                        convent and taught them chant. He succeeded his brother in the abbacy at
                        Fosses and later he became abbot of a monastery at Perrone, where he
                        died. He was buried in Fosses Abbey (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney,
                        Montague).

                          to it where the Holy Well of St Gennys was located. Here from the 600's
                          people have been baptised.

                          926 - After King Athelstan's final conquest of Cornwall, it is almost
                          certain a small Saxon church was built on this site and it is possible
                          at this point the dedication to St Genesius probably originates.




                          St. Germanus (Germaine) of Normandy, Bishop Martyr
                          -------------------------------------------------------
                          Died c. 460. It may be hard to believe that someone named Germanus of
                          Normandy originated either in Ireland or Wales, but it is true. Today's
                          saint was converted by Saint Germanus of Auxerre, whose name he took,
                          when the bishop was visiting Britain. Today's saint worked as a bishop
                          with Saint Patrick and is alleged to have evangelized in Wales, Spain,
                          Gaul, and the Isle of Man. Some regard Germanus as the Apostle of the
                          Isle of Man. He was martyred in Normandy (Benedictines, Montague).


                          St. Gluvias (Glywys)
                          ---------------------------
                          6th century. Saint Gluvias may have been sent to Cornwall by his
                          brother, Saint Cadoc of Llancarfan. There he laid the foundation for a
                          monastery and a parish commemorates his name (Benedictines).

                          The church stands on the site of the hermitage of its patron, Gluvias,
                          who belongs to that great tide of saints which swept down from Wales and
                          overspilled into Brittany. He is the brother of S.Cadoc, which would
                          make him the son of St.Woolos of Newport and St.Gladys, one of the
                          daughters of Brychan. St.Petroc, the founder of Padstow and Bodmin, was
                          uncle to Cadoc and Gluvias, and St.Keyne would have been their great
                          aunt. St.Keyne gives her name to Keynsham between Bristol and Bath and
                          to the parish in Cornwall between Looe and Liskeard.

                          These family connections are a feature of the Celtic saints, but of
                          St.Gluvias himself we know little except that he chose this fertile
                          valley for his retreat, famous for its flowers as well as its granite.
                          His church looks down over Penryn, which lies at the side of Falmouth,
                          and although it is probably older and more distinguished than its
                          neighbour, it has not grown so large. It now has no church of its own,
                          but once it was a famous place of learning, receiving scholars from
                          Oxford to join the canons of its famous Glasney College, founded by
                          Bishop Bronescombe. It had a great collegiate church, dedicated to
                          St.Thomas of Canterbury, but there are few traces of the church and
                          college buildings, which were once "strongly walled".

                          Glasney College might have become a university if it had survived the
                          sixteenth century, but during the middle ages it had a great influence
                          on the life of the Church in Cornwall, and some of the miracle plays in
                          Cornish, which were composed there, are extant. Among some of the
                          manuscripts that have survived is a reference to St.Gluvias as a martyr,
                          but there is no indication of the manner in which he glorified Our Lord
                          by his death (Bowen, John, Mee).

                          Present structure dates from1883, with sections from earlier centuries.

                          Cornwall/ while thy brother holy Cadoc enlightened Wales./ As thou dost
                          intercede for all mankind,/ pray to Christ our God to grant us His great
                          mercy.


                          St. Neachtain
                          -------------------
                          5th century. Saint Neachtain was present at the death of his near
                          relative Saint Patrick of Ireland (Benedictines).


                          St. Ultan of Peronne, Abbot Bishop
                          --------------------------------------
                          Died c. 686. Ultan, an Irish monk like his brothers Saints Fursey and
                          Foillan, went with them on a missionary journey to East Anglia. There,
                          with Fursey, he founded Burghcastle Monastery near Yarmouth but migrated
                          to France and the Abbey of Saint-Quentin, then to Belgium, to escape
                          raiding Mercians. His brother Foillan built and became abbot of Fosses
                          Monastery on land given to him by Blessed Itta and her daughter Saint
                          Gertrude of Nivelles. During this time Ultan was chaplain to Gertrude's
                          convent and taught them chant. He succeeded his brother in the abbacy at
                          Fosses and later he became abbot of a monastery at Perrone, where he
                          died. He was buried in Fosses Abbey (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney,
                          Montague).

                            St. Gennys
                            ---------------
                            Date unknown. Saint Gennys is often confused with Saint Genesius of
                            Arles, but the patron of Cornwall has his own feast today, which may
                            point to the fact that he is a different individual and an obscure,
                            local founder. He may more properly be identified with Saint Genesius
                            the Martyr, whose head was translated on July 19 to Lismore. To add to
                            the confusion, the famous Germanus of Auxerre is also known as Gennys or
                            Genewys (Benedictines, Farmer).


                            Saint Genny's Church in Cornwall
                            http://homepages.tesco.net/~k.wasley/StGennys.htm

                            The church is situated in a dell amongst the high cliffs of the North
                            Cornish Coast that look over the ever-surging sea- High Cliff to the
                            south west towering over "The Haven" is 730 ft high and the tallest in
                            Britain.

                            This secluded isolated spot so solitary for a parish church is because
                            its origins go back to the years of the Celtic Church. Sometime in the
                            mid 7th Century a Celtic Monk (hermit) arrived here, on foot or by boat,
                            and chose our site for its solitude and its ready supply of water.

                            The locals must have been very quickly attracted to the "Holy Man" and
                            he in due time taught them the Christian message and baptised them in
                            his source of water which became known as "The Holy Well" so the site
                            was established as the Holy Place in the locality. A stone cross set up
                            close by & a tiny wooden hut for the priest or monk to live in. The
                            services would be held in the open air.

                            On the right hand -side of the path that leads to the church the green
                            drops away steeply. A careful look down and across, or a jaunt over the
                            grass will reveal an old well - its is not so long ago the water from
                            here was still on domestic use - however this is the spot or very close
                            to it where the Holy Well of St Gennys was located. Here from the 600's
                            people have been baptised.

                            926 - After King Athelstan's final conquest of Cornwall, it is almost
                            certain a small Saxon church was built on this site and it is possible
                            at this point the dedication to St Genesius probably originates.




                            St. Germanus (Germaine) of Normandy, Bishop Martyr
                            -------------------------------------------------------
                            Died c. 460. It may be hard to believe that someone named Germanus of
                            Normandy originated either in Ireland or Wales, but it is true. Today's

                            when the bishop was visiting Britain. Today's saint worked as a bishop
                            with Saint Patrick and is alleged to have evangelized in Wales, Spain,
                            Gaul, and the Isle of Man. Some regard Germanus as the Apostle of the
                            Isle of Man. He was martyred in Normandy (Benedictines, Montague).


                            St. Gluvias (Glywys)
                            ---------------------------
                            6th century. Saint Gluvias may have been sent to Cornwall by his
                            brother, Saint Cadoc of Llancarfan. There he laid the foundation for a
                            monastery and a parish commemorates his name (Benedictines).

                            The church stands on the site of the hermitage of its patron, Gluvias,
                            who belongs to that great tide of saints which swept down from Wales and
                            overspilled into Brittany. He is the brother of S.Cadoc, which would
                            make him the son of St.Woolos of Newport and St.Gladys, one of the
                            daughters of Brychan. St.Petroc, the founder of Padstow and Bodmin, was
                            uncle to Cadoc and Gluvias, and St.Keyne would have been their great
                            aunt. St.Keyne gives her name to Keynsham between Bristol and Bath and
                            to the parish in Cornwall between Looe and Liskeard.

                            These family connections are a feature of the Celtic saints, but of

                            --------------------------------------
                            Died c. 686. Ultan, an Irish monk like his brothers Saints Fursey and
                            Foillan, went with them on a missionary journey to East Anglia. There,
                            with Fursey, he founded Burghcastle Monastery near Yarmouth but migrated
                            to France and the Abbey of Saint-Quentin, then to Belgium, to escape
                            raiding Mercians. His brother Foillan built and became abbot of Fosses
                            Monastery on land given to him by Blessed Itta and her daughter Saint
                            Gertrude of Nivelles. During this time Ultan was chaplain to Gertrude's
                            convent and taught them chant. He succeeded his brother in the abbacy at
                            Fosses and later he became abbot of a monastery at Perrone, where he
                            died. He was buried in Fosses Abbey (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney,
                            Montague).
