St. Titus was born a Greek Gentile close to Antioch.  He was a master of Greek culture and philosophy until he met St. Paul.

St. Titus would become a useful secretary who could interpret for St. Paul as he journeyed throughout the region.

St. Titus was present at the Council of Jerusalem in 49 A.D. which is important because of the debate over circumcision.  For Titus, that could be a vital question.  St. Titus also worked to raise money to support the Jerusalem Church.  It is believed St. Titus might be related to St. Luke, according to tradition St. Luke did not mention himself or his family because of his humility.

St. Titus was baptized by St. Paul and then became a strong co-worker with St. Paul.  St. Paul would write to Titus saying, "to Titus, my true child in our common faith: grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior."

Like St. Timothy, St. Titus traveled far and wide with St. Paul sharing the Catholic Faith to many people.  

So much did St. Paul love Titus, he would write (2 Corinthians 2:12-13) "When I came to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ, a door was opened for me in the Lord; but my mind could not rest because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I took leave of them and went on to Macedonia."
