St Engelmund

Today (21 June) we commemorate St. Engelmund, abbot and missionary (ca. 739). Dr Baring-Gould dispenses with him briefly: ‘[Venerated at Haarlem, and in the diocese of Utrecht. Authority : — The Lections of the Haarlem Breviary.] S. Engelmund was an English Benedictine monk who came into Holland with S. Willibrord, and preached the faith. He was placed by S. Willibrord in charge of a church at Velsen, near Haarlem, and there he died of fever.’

lots about Engelmund in Dutch

Holy Saint Engelmund, pray to God for us.
