Happy Saint Kevins Day

Yes there is one! Just found out about it last week. Turns out he is the Patron Saint of Dublin!

St Kevin (Coemgen or Keivin) was born to a wealthy family in Ireland in 498. He was baptized by Saint Cronan and at seven he was put under the tutelidge of St Petrocus. After five years with him he was placed under the care of three anchorites (Dogain, Lochan, and Enna). He spent three years under their guidance studying the Holy Scriptures before taking on the monastic habit. Some time later he founded a great monastery at Glendaloch.

The reputation of Saint Kevin and his monastery attracted a growing number of pilgrims, thus making Glendalough into a great and holy city. Saint Kevin then was elevated to the status of bishop, and erected a church there under the invocation of Saints Peter and Paul.

Saint Kevin's patience was also the stuff of legend: a story is told that once a bird laid an egg in the palm of his hand. Saint Kevin, not wanting to harm the egg, remained motionless until the egg was hatched.

Saint Kevin died on July 3, 618. His feast is celebrated on the third of July in both Orthodox and Western calendars. However in Ireland it is celebrated on the 3rd of June!




To all the Kevins out there ...

Yo Mama ...


... has great taste in names.

All Hail to the Kevins around the world!

Is it appropriate to say "Happy St Kevin's Day"?
