Eugenia-St. Eugenia was the daughter of the Prefect, Philip, a pagan, that was sent from Rome to Alexandria to rule for the emperor. She having read the epistles of St. Paul, came to accept the Christian Faith. She with her two servants, Protas and Hyacinth, left Alexandria by night and took up the monastic life in a monastery of men. She had cut her hair, called herself Eugene and passed herself as an eunuch. Her parents feared that she was dead and mourned for her.
