THE STORY OF SAINT JANUARIUS The story and history of Saint Januarius (San Gennaro) comes from the fourth century. He was born in Naples, a Roman province under the rule of the Roman Emperor Diocletian (284-305). Emperor Diocletian mounted some of the fiercest persecutions of the early Christian Church. St. Januarius became the bishop of Benevento, Benevento being a province and town in Campania, 450 Km northeast of Naples. St. Januarius was imprisoned while visiting an incarcerated deacon called Proculus at the sulphur mines of Puteoli, near Solfatara. Pozzuoli is a city of the province of Napoli near Solfatara, a shallow volcanic crater. St. Januarius was martyred with Proculus at Pozzuoli by first being thrown to wild beasts in the arena and when the animals would not attack him, he was beheaded. His blood was preserved, and dried. Since at least 1389 on his feast day and on the Saturday before the first Sunday in May, the blood liquefies. His feast day is September 19th and is the patron saint of Naples, blood banks and volcanic eruptions. Saint Januarius Church Mission Statement St. Januarius is a Roman Catholic community of faith focused on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. We are grateful to those who have built up St. Januarius to be a welcoming, active, and spiritual parish. With the Eucharist and through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we strive to use the gifts and talents given to us by the Father to support the lives of parishioners at all age levels and stages of life. We also pledge to live our lives so that through our words and actions all may feel the presence of Jesus Christ in the world today.
