Book of Saints – Trumwin

main article for Saint Trumwin of WhitbyArticle

(Saint) Bishop (February 5) (8th century) An Anglo-Saxon Saint. He was consecrated Bishop by Saint Theodore of Canterbury in order that he might engage in missionary work among the Picts. His path in life seems to have been one of toil and pain above the ordinary. He had repeatedly to fly from province to province, being often misunderstood and driven off his field of work. He was a great friend and supporter of Saint Cuthbert. In the end he retired to Whitby, and there ministered to the spiritual needs of the holy community of nuns presided over by Saint Elfleda. Saint Trumwin went to his reward in one of the first years of the eighth century.
