St. Honoratus, in French Honore, Bishop of Amiens, Confessor
 
HE was a native of Ponthieu, and bishop of Amiens about the year 660. In 1204 a church was built at Paris in his honour by a private gentleman named Renold Cherins, who four years after endowed it with a foundation for several canonries, the number of which has been since augmented. This collegiate church became very famous. It is also a small parish. 1 St. Honoratus is titular saint of a chartreuse at Abbeville, which was founded in 1306. See Gallia Christ. Nova, t. 10, p. 1153. Le Fevre, Calendr. de l’Egl. de Paris ad 16 Maij, &c.  1
