Saint Urban of Langres (Patron Saint against Storms, of  Vinegrowers and of Gardeners) (Feast Date: April 2)

Extract from Saint Urban of Langres: “Bishop of Langres, France in 374. During a period of persecution of the Church, Urban hid for a while in a vineyard. There he converted the vine dressers, who then helped him in his covert ministry. Due to their work, and to Urban’s devotion to the Holy Blood, he developed great affection to all the people in the wine industry, and they for him.” See PICTURE of Saint Urban of Langres.
