Commemorated on November 1

The Holy Martyr Cyrenia was arrested for confessing the Christian Faith under Marcian, the Governor of Cilicia during the reign of Emperor Maximian Galerius (305-311). St. Cyrenia was led around Tarsus to be mocked, being stripped of her garments and with a shorn head. She was then taken to the city of Rosa where she was burned alive.
