Ss. Maura & Brigid of Northumbria


Commemorated on July 13

Ss. Maura and Brigid were two British princesses from Northumbria who were born in the third century.

While making their way to Rome on a pilgrimage, they were murdered by Frankish soldiers in Balagny-sur-Therain.

Their bodies were buried at the spot of their martyrdom, and pilgrims eventually flocked to their shrine.
