St. Kennocha, Virgin of Scotland
March 13, 2023
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 13 of March, repeating indefinitely
An only daughter and heiress of significant fortune, St. Kennocha made an entire sacrifice of herself to God, by making her religious profession in a great nunnery in the county of Fife. By an extraordinary love of poverty and mortification, a wonderful gift of prayer and purity of singleness of heart, she attained to the perfection of all virtues. Several miracles which she wrought made her famous and she passed to God in a good old age, in the year 1007. Several churches in Scotland bore her name, particularly one near Glasgow still called St. Kennoch’s Kirk.
