Saint Vulganius of Arras

St. Vulganius (Wulganus, Vulmar) of Arras, Hermit – November 3

Died c. 704. Saint Vulganius was an Irishman, Welshman, or Englishman (according to a manuscript at Lens he was born at Canterbury) who crossed over to France and evangelized the Atrebati. Finally he lived as a hermit at Arras, under the obedience of the abbot of Saint Vedast. Some refer to him as a bishop. A portion of his relics are kept at the abbey of Liesse, others at Lens (near Douai) of which he is patron. A claim was made that his body rested at Christ Church in Canterbury “in a chest on the beam beyond the altar of Saint Stephen.” (Benedictines, Farmer, Husenbeth).
