Sigfrid, Bishop, Apostle of Sweden

15 February -- Commemoration
If celebrated as a Lesser Festival, Common of Missionaries, page 503

Sigfrid was most probably an Englishman sent by King Ethelred to assist in the evangelisation of Norway and Sweden in the eleventh century. He took with him two fellow missionaries, all three of whom were eventually consecrated bishops. Sigfrid was made Bishop of Vaxjo (pronounced Vek-sha) in Sweden, though his missionary journeys also took him into Denmark. He died in Vaxjo in 1045, much revered throughout Scandinavia.
