Saints of Britain – Saint Lalluwy (virgin) - 6th October

Not much is known of this pious saint from Menheniot in Cornwall but there is one remaining church dedicated to St Lalluwy and St Antonius in the village.
Associated with the virtue of virginity and also, in common with many Cornish saints, a well near the church; the Troparion for her feast day of 6th October is as follows:
In Tone 8
To this day Menheniot's sacred well
witnesses to thy virtue, O pious Lalluwy.
As thou didst call forth a stream of living water from the earth,
we pray thee, entreat Christ our God
to pour forth for us the saving waters of eternal life.
