The earthly remains of Saint Peregrin, a second century martyr, are enshrined in the Relic Chapel of St. John's Abbey Church, Collegeville, Minnesota. Our Peregrin is not the Italian confessor, Peregrinus Laziosi O.Serv. (1265-1345), patron of cancer patients. Peregrin Took, commonly known simply as Pippin, is a fictional character from J. Tolkien 's fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings. He is closely tied with his friend and cousin, Merry Brandybuck, and the two are together during most of the story.
