Book of Saints – Helanus


(Saint) (October 7) (6th century) The tradition at Reims, where his festival is kept, is that Saint Helanus came to France in the sixth century, with his six brothers and three sisters, who thenceforth lived separately, the one from the other, an Eremitical life, on the banks of the River Marne. Saint Helanus, who was a priest, presided over them and ministered to the people of the neighbourhood. He appears to have survived till after A.D. 600.
