Saint’s Biography

Saint Pancras of Rome was an orphan (14), brought to Rome by his uncle, Saint Dionysius, and later converted to Christianity. Pancras was killed with Saint Nereus, Saint Achilleus, and Saint Domitilla for announcing their faith. His relics were sent to the British Isles as part of the evangelization of England, so they have relics of the entire church and can be placed in altars in new churches. St. Augustine of Canterbury consecrated the first church in England to St. Pancras, and subsequent churches throughout England are named after him.
