St. Sigrada of France


Commemorated on August 8

St. Sigrada was the mother of St. Leger, Bishop of Autun, and St. Guarin. She was shut up in the monastery of Notre Dame de Soissons by King Ebroin, who persecuted her family for their faith in Christ. Her goods were confiscated, and her son, Guarin, was stoned to death. Her other son, St. Leger, was thrown into prison, where he was subjected to cruel conditions.

She became a nun at the convent of Soissons in France in the seventh century, where she died shortly after the martyrdom of her sons.
