St Ursula

Saint Ursula

Feast day: 21 October

There is very little known about St Ursula and her story may not be historical.The legend is that she was a Cornish princess, daughter of King Dionotus. She was to be married to a pagan prince, Canan Meriodoc of Armorica (Brittany), but was allowed to postpone the marriage for three years while she went on a pilgrimage. It is said that she took eleven thousand virgins with her and that they were martyred at Cologne. Some accounts say that Ursula refused to marry the Hun king who then killed her.
