The Catholic Church has a wonderful treasury of saints. Patron saints are saints of the Catholic Church who led lives of heroic virtue and became great Christian role models after their death and subsequent canonization. Parents are encouraged to give their children saint names because ..."a good name is more desirable than great riches..." (Proverbs 22:1). Giving your child a Catholic patron saint name is one good way of encouraging them to live a similar life of saintly virtue.
Patron saint medals are another great way to remind us of our call to holiness. Here you will find the patron saint medal that is just right for you or your loved one. Saint medals are suitable for engraving and make great gifts for Baptism, Confirmation, First Holy Communion, Service men and women, or any occasion. For some of the more popular patron saints you will also find a variety of other items associated with them, such as prayer cards, statues, rosaries or books.
