Resources for St. Aelred's Day

St. Aelred is the Patron Saint of Integrity USA.  Born in 1110 in Hexham, England, Aelred became a monk whose teachings on "spiritual friendship" have been revered for centuries.  He is widely considered to have been gay, although the modern concept of homosexuality did not exist at the time.

AelredFor over 25 years, Integrity USA has celebrated the Feast of St. Aelred (January 12) as a special day for chapters and parishes to hold Eucharistic services in St. Aelred's honor. In 2012, Integrity's Connecticut chapter developed the resources below to aid in these services.

Please click the links below to see suggested collects, scripture readings, hymns, anthems and other liturgical resources that you can use for your St. Aelred's Day celebration. Questions? Contact us.
