Calendar of Scottish Saints – Saint Euchadius, Monk, A.D. 597


25 January. This saint was one of the twelve disciples who accompanied Saint Columba from Ireland and settled with him upon the island of Iona. He was one of the saint’s helpers in the conversion of the Northern Picts. He is said to have written the Acts of Saint Columba. It seems probable that Saint Euchadius laboured at one time in Galloway, as he received special veneration in that district. This may have been due, however, to relics of the saint preserved there in Catholic ages.
