saints March – April

This list is based on the monthly calendar published by yorkorthodox. For dates left blank by the yorkthodox calendar, you may wish to look at orthodoxengland‘s calendar of western European saints; as its remit is wider, its number of saints listed per day is commensurately higher: March, April.
Saints in [square brackets] may not be included in Orthodox menologies, but as far as I know there isn’t a definitive one anyway, and I’m interested in collecting more female pre-schism saints. They are drawn from Miss Dunbar’s work.
