Saint Sixtus Martyr

Reposed 3 century Remembered February 7

St Sixtus was a British martyr in Kent in the third century. He is mentioned by St Bede in his Ecclesiastical History of the English people. St Augustine, not knowing anything about him but supposing him erroneously to be an early St Sixtus of Rome who was buried in Rome, on instructions from the Pope, suppressed his ‘rival’ veneration.
