    I would like to know when is the feast day of st. cynthia on catholic calender! Catholic priests in my parish cannot baptize the name, they will usually refer you to names on the calender and cynthia’s name does not appear. It does either appears in the bible. So what can we do?

  • Nassejje: St. Cynthia’s feast is February 8. She is mentioned in the Roman Martyrology. There is no reason not to name a Catholic girl with this name.

    what is the specil about saint cynthia…

  • What is so special about her is that she is in heaven and Church honors her as a martyr for Christ. All that is special enough.

  • She was martyred in the persecution of Decius, which lasted from 249 to 251. That’s as much as I can answer, Monica.
