St. Olympias

St. Olympias was born to a noble family in Constantinople but was orphaned when she was young. After she was married and widowed, she decided to devote her life to the church. She built a hospital and an orphanage, and she performed other charitable works. In 404 she was exiled because she supported St. John Chrysostom. She died in 408.
