St BRIEUC

Christian Saint

Also known as BRIOC

Perpetrator of many amazing miracles starting from his childhood in Cardiganshire.

Giving the family pitcher to some lepers, he realized he could be in trouble at home, so he prayed for help. Lo and behold! A new brass pitcher appeared from nowhere.

He went to Rome on the orders of an Angel and became a pupil of St GERMANUS-OF-AUXERRE. Amongst other notable events he ensured a safe sea trip by vanquishing a sea monster, and on a trip to Cornwall tamed a whole pack of wolves.

Eventually he founded an Abbey in Brittany on the spot where today the City of Saint-Brieuc stands. This was also his final resting place.
