St. Aaron of Aleth (or  Saint Aihran in Breton) was a sixth century hermit, monk and abbot at a monastery on Cézembre in Aleth. Cézembre is on a tiny island that you can reach only when the tide is low.  He lived in Aleth and was a well known   bishop.  However he was very humble and lived all his life like a monk. For centuries that followed his death, the little island where he lived was called Aaron. Today this island is called after the name of his disciple St. Malo. His feast day is on June 22nd. Saint Aaron is  considered to be the patron saint of anybody who lives a passionate and steadfast life.
