From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Saint Hadelin (or Adelin, Hadelinus) d. about 690, born in Gascony, was one of the scholarly, mostly Irish monks, who preached Christianity and started conversion work in what is now Belgium under the pagan invaders, as did Saint Servatius and Saint Remacle.

He is especially venerated in the Walloon diocese of Namur, as founder of the monastery of Celles. His shrine, a silver-made shrine in the Mosan style, can be found in Visé, Belgium.

His liturgical feast is on February 3.
