St. Peter of Verona
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 29 of April, repeating indefinitely
St. Peter was born in Verona about 1205; his parents were Manichaeans, but he was converted and entered the Order of Preachers with the ambition not only of preaching the faith but of giving his life for it. He had his wish, for in the course of his apostolic work he was assassinated by the Manichaeans on the road from Como to Milan in 1252.
