Carilefus (Calais, or Cales), Saint

Carilefus (Calais, Or Cales), Saint

was born of noble parents in the territory of Auvergne, and entered a monastery at Miscy, then under St. Maximinus. Not long after he went into retirement at Le Mans, and still later, obtaining from Childebert some land, he built thereon the monastery of St. Calais du Desert. He probably lived between 517 and 542. His remains were removed in 1171 and 1653. His day is July 21.

There is a Carilefus, a presbyter of Aninsula, in Gaul, commemorated in Usuard's Martyrology on July 1.
