Felix of Como

Saint Felix of Como (died on October 8, 391 AD) is venerated as the first bishop of Como.

He was a friend of Saint Ambrose, who praised him for his missionary activity and ordained him a priest in 379 and a bishop in 386.[1] When Bassianus of Lodi built a church dedicated to the Apostles at Lodi, he consecrated it in the presence of Ambrose and Felix.[2]

Felix is honored as a zealous pastor of souls.[3] His feast day is July 1.[4]
