Saint Felix of Rhuys (died 1038) was a Breton Benedictine hermit and abbot.


Born in Quimper, he was a recluse on Ushant. He then entered the Benedictine order at Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire. Felix rebuilt Rhuys Abbey,[1] which had been founded by Saint Gildas in the 6th century on the Gulf of Morbihan, and had been destroyed by the Normans.

His feast day is March 4.
