Catholic Saints

For Catholics, saints serve as guideposts. As Catholics, we look to the example that so many holy women and men have set over the course of our Church’s history, from the early disciples to those disciples we encounter in our daily lives. Our history is full of saints: some popular saints are household names; others may serve as an opportunity to get a glimpse into a completely new way of living out our faith. During Lent, we have the opportunity to learn more about these Catholic saints. Below, we offer a list of popular Catholic saints. Use our prayers and stories about these holy men and women to reflect on their lives and to ask them to pray for us.
