Saint Asaph Bishop

Reposed late 6th century Remembered May 1

St Asaph was a cousin of St Deiniol and may have made his hermitage near Holywell in Flintshire in Wales in the late 6C. He became a disciple of St Kentigern (Mungo). When St Kentigern returned north he made Asaph a Bishop, due, it is said, to a miracle performed by his disciple.
