St. Agathangelus , Deacon
Died 309

Feastday: January 23
After Bishop Saint Clement of Ancyra, Galatia (Ankara, Turkey), miraculously survived torture, he was taken to Rome. While in prison there he met, converted, and baptized Saint Agathangelus, then ordained him deacon. He followed the bishop to the East, and both were martyred at Ancyra under Diocletian. Their Acta are most romantic, but unfortunately spurious. Their relics were venerated in Pera, a suburb of Constantinople, until they were taken by the Latins
