This Saintly Saturday is the feast day of Saint Augustine of Canterbury; however, I’d like to introduce you to Saint Vitus, the patron saint of dancers. This evening was Ayla’s dance recital. She did a wonderful job and we are proud of her for sticking with it and completing the whole year. She loved dressing up in her costumes and performing.
There isn’t much known about Saint Vitus, martyred in 303, but he became the patron saint of dancers after Germans in the middle ages danced in front of his statue on his feast day. His feast day is June 15.
