Saint Erastus ~ A Patron For Treasurers and City Officials

Gulf of Corinth
Saint Erastus is first mentioned in the Bible in the Book of Acts … in the midst of Paul’s Third Missionary Journey.  Paul was in Ephesus and Erastus was with him.  Erastus was sent ahead to Macedonia and later to Corinth, where he served as a treasurer.  There is a bit of ancient sidewalk  remnant in Corinth with an inscription sharing that a city official named Erastus laid the pavement at his own expense.

Feast Day:  July 26
