BLESSED JUTTA of BIELCZYNY

Blessed Jutta was born ca 1220 in Sangerhausen at the foot of the Harz Mountains, north of Erfurt. When her husband had died, she distributed all her wealth to the poor, and started to make pilgrimages to holy places. He supported the Teutonic Knights in their Christianising of Prussia. Living in a hermitage in Bielczyny, near Chełmża, she cared for the sick and shared the food that she managed to obtain by begging. Her cult began soon after her death and her body was placed in the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Chełmża.
