ERKEMBODON (Saint) Bishop (April 12) (8th century) Leaving Ireland in company with two missionaries who were murdered on the way, Saint Erkembodon entered the monastery of Saint Omer, where he was elected Abbot, becoming afterwards Bishop of Saint Omer and Terouanne. He died A.D. 734. Many miracles were wrought at his shrine, and the offerings of pilgrims were soon so considerable that they sufficed to defray the cost of the reconstruction of the Cathedral.
