      St. Vimin of Holywood, Bishop
      (Vivian, Wynnin, Gwynnin)
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      6th century. Saint Vimin, a Scottish bishop whose history is very
      confused, is said to have been the founder of the monastery of Holywood
      at Nithsdale. It is related that Vimin was an abbot in Fifeshire when he
      was consecrated bishop. He actively evangelized the region. In order to
      avoid the temptations to pride that accompanied his many miracles, he
      moved to a deserted place and founded Holywood ("Sacrumboscum"), which
      later became famous for producing many holy and
      learned men. The family of Wemse in Fifeshire is said to be of the same
      lineage as Vimin (Attwater2, Benedictines, Husenbeth).


      St. Brigid (Briga) of Kilbride, Virgin
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      6th century. Saint Brigid is venerated in the diocese of Lismore. It is
      recorded that her famous namesake of Kildare (f.d. February 1) visited
      her more than once at Kilbride (Benedictines).


      St. Lawdog
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      6th century. He is the titular patron of four churches in the diocese of
      Saint David's in Wales and, perhaps, identical with Saint Lleuddad
      (Laudatus; f.d. January 15), abbot of Bardsey (Benedictines).


      St. Maccallin of Waulsort, Abbot
      (Malcallan, Maolcalain)
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      Died 978. Maccallin was an Irishman who made a pilgrimage to Saint
      Fursey's shrine at Peronne during the Viking terror. He entered the
      Benedictine abbey of Gorze. Later he became a hermit and was given a
      grant of land on which he founded Saint Michael's monastery at Thierache
      and governed it as abbot. Soon after he made a second foundation at
      Waulsort ("Valciodorum") Abbey, near Dinant, Belgium, on the River
      Meuse, over which he placed Saint Cadroe (f.d. March 6). In
      946, Emperor Otto I issued a charter that stipulated that Waulsort
      should be governed by an Irish abbot so long as one was available within
      the community (Benedictines, D'Arcy, Fitzpatrick, Montague, O'Hanlon).
