Alternative Saint Of The Day

Saint Hunna was an aristocratic lady from the royal family of Alsace who married a nobleman, Huno of Hunnaweyer, a small village in the diocese of Strasbourg.

She donated properties to monasteries and financed the construction of churches. But she was mostly known for being so caring for the poor around her that she even lent a hand in doing the washing for her neighbours in need. Because of this, she was known as “the holy washerwoman." She died in 679 and her feast is on the fifteenth of April. She is, unsurprisingly, the patron saint of laundry workers.
