Saint Felix of Como (died on October 8, 391 AD) is venerated as the first bishop of Como.

He was a friend of Saint Ambrose, who praised him for his missionary activity and ordained him a priest in 379 and a bishop in 386.[1]

When Saint Bassianus built a church dedicated to the Apostles at Lodi, he consecrated it in the presence of Ambrose and Felix.[2] His feast day is celebrated on July 1.[3]
