Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Feock

Catholic Hipsters be like, "You secular types can have your Groundhog Day, and we'll go on celebrating our beloved Church's obscure saints."

Today is the feast of the amazingly obscure St. Feock!



Here is the whole of our knowledge of Feock:

He is the patron of a church in Cornwall, England.

He was possibly Irish by birth.

He may actually be St. Fiace.

And, to more thoroughly fill in your Catholic Hipster knowledge, here is the whole of our information on Fiace:

He was an Irish Bishop. 

He was a disciple of St. Patrick, who honored the great saint by writing a hymn in his honor.

His name was sometimes written as "St. Fiech." 

I love being Catholic. 

St. Feock, pray for us!

  2. You may know this already but there has been a split between Immaculate Heart Radio and EWTN, that's why no more Kresta, Son Rise and others. If you want to know more, my name is Patrick and I work in Catholic radio in the south (psgola2002 yahoo.com). I didn't feel tweeting out to you in public because I do work in Catholic radio.
