Achairius (or Aicharius)
Achairius (Or Aicharius)
ST., was brought up in the monastery of Luxeuil, in Burgundy, about the middle of the 7th century. His reputation for holiness caused him to be chosen to succeed Euraldis, bishop of Noyon and Tournai, which sees had been permanently united since A.D. 532. Achairius died Nov. 27, 639, and was buried in the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul at Noyon, where his festival is celebrated. He is not found in the martyrologies of the 9th century, nor in the modern Roman. See, Baillet, Vies des Saints, vol. 3, Nov. 27.
