Todays Saint
23/06/2017

Etheldreda (died 679)

She was a popular English Saint, was the daughter of royalty and became a nun. She founded a double monastery at Ely. She led an auster life and spent many hours in quiet prayer. She died from plague and after seventeen years her coffin and body were found to be intact. Some of her relics are to be found in St. Etheldreda's church at Ely Place in London. The popular version of her name is Audrey.
