      Celtic and Old English Saints 1 July

      * St. Servan of Culross
      * St. Aaron and St. Julius of Caerleon
      * St. Cewydd of Anglesey
      * St. Gwenyth of Cornwall
      =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


      St. Servan (Serf), Bishop of Culross, Scotland,
      Co-labourer of Saint Ninian
      ---------------------------------------------------
      6th century. Patron of the Orkney Islands. Bishop.
      Also known as Servanus, Serf, or Sair. According to an tradition, he was
      from Ireland, receiving consecration as bishop from St. Palladius and
      preaching among the Seots. He is honoured as the patron of the Orkney
      Islands, although it is unlikely that he was ever there. He is called
      the Apostle of West Fife.



      St. Aaron and St. Julius and Companions,
      Martyrs of Caerleon, Wales
      -----------------------------------------------
      Date unknown, probably c. 304-305.
      Julius and Aaron were Roman-Britons who are said to have been put to
      death at Caerleon-upon-Usk in Monmouthshire, Britain, perhaps in the
      middle of the 3rd century.

      Saint Gildas (f.d. January 29) records that they died under Diocletian,
      but it is now believed that Diocletian's decree against
      Christians was not enforced in Britain. Saint Bede (f.d. May 25) simply
      records their illustrious triumph and that "very many others of both
      sexes, by unheard of tortures, attained to the crown of heavenly glory."
      Another ancient, but not contemporary,
      hagiographer relates that Julius and Aaron went to Rome and "there
      applied themselves to the sacred studies." Nothing else is
      recorded about them. The date c. 304, during the persecution of
      Diocletian, commonly given to these martyrs is only a conjecture (though
      a very old one).

      Attestation to their cultus can be found in church dedications in and
      near Caerleon, and mention in the Book of Llan Dav. Gerald of Wales
      writes that their relics were venerated in Caerleon in 1200 AD, and that
      each was titular to a church and a monastery; Julius's name belonged to
      a convent and Aaron's to an abbey of canons. Their feast is kept in the
      diocese of Cardiff (Attwater, Attwater2, Benedictines, Farmer,
      Husenbeth).


      St. Cewydd of Anglesey, Wales
      --------------------------------------------


      St. Gwenyth, Virgin of Cornwall,
      Sister of Saint Samson of York
