Saturday Saints- #93

Today’s post belongs to the letter M. This leads to our saint for today, Moninne:

Saint Moninne of Killeavy was one of Ireland’s early female saints. After instruction in the religious life, she founded a community, initially consisting of eight virgins and a widow with a baby, at Slieve Gullion, in what became County Armagh. They lived an eremitical life, based on that of Elijah and Saint John the Baptist. Moninne died in 517. Her feast day is July 6.

More can be found out about her at her wiki, here.
