1st June - St Whyte - Independent Catholic News

1st June - St Whyte - Independent Catholic News: This early British saint gave her name to, and is buried at Whitechurch Canonicorum, in Dorset. Her modest shrine, together with that of Edward the Confessor, are the only two to survive intact in England to this day. Very little is known about her. She is sometimes also called St Candida. Some historians think she was a West Saxon, others say she may have been the Welsh saint Gwen, whose relics were given by St Athelstan to this church.
