St. Burgundofara (or Fara) of France
Commemorated on April 3 (and December 7)
Blessed by St. Columbanus as a child, Burgundofara became a nun despite her father’s opposition. She was responsible for founding the convent of Brige in France.
The monastery was later renamed Faremoutiers (Fara’s Monastery) where she was abbess for thirty-seven years. She fell asleep in Christ in 657.
