Saint Roch

(Saint Rocco)

Patron Saint of Dogs

Saint Roch - Saint Rocco - Patron Saint of Dogs

Saint Roch was born of French nobility in 1285 with a natural affinity for the poor and for the sick. 

While on a pilgrimage, Saint Roch stopped to minister to victims of The Plague - curing many - but eventually contracting the disease himself.

Saint Roch went into the forest to die, but was instead cared for by a dog who licked his wounds and brought him food.  Saint Roch recovered.

Upon returning home, Saint Roch was charged with spying and died in prison in 1327.

Saint Roch's Feast Day is August 16.
