Book of Saints – Lucius of Cyrene


(Saint) Bishop (May 6) (1st century) One of the “prophets and doctors” recorded in Holy Scripture as being in the Church at Antioch when Paul and Barnabas were set apart for their Apostolic work (Acts 13:1). He is stated to have been “of Cyrene,” whence the tradition that he was the first Bishop of that city in the Ptolemais (Africa).
