1910 New Catholic Dictionary
Confessor, Bishop of Glasgow, born probably Culross, Fife, Scotland, 518; died Glasgow, Scotland, 603. He began his missionary labors at Cathures; on the Clyde (modern Glasgow), where he was consecrated Bishop, 540. For thirteen years he preached and taught there, leading a life of great austerity. In 553 an anti-Christian uprising forced him to seek refuge with Saint David at Menevia, Wales. He established the monastery at Llanelwy, and, returning to Scotland, 573, founded his see at Hoddam, near Dumfries, evangelizing the districts of Galloway and Cumberland. In 581 he returned to Glasgow. Relics preserved in the crypt of the cathedral named for him at Glasgow. Feast, January 13,.
