Patron Saints


Patron saints are honored in several religions, but particularly in Roman Catholicism. The saints can be a patron saint of a region, a church, a profession, a special cause, or an ailment. Although angels (such as the Archangel Gabriel) are considered to be patron saints, most of the saints were at one time living people. Some saints including Saint Christopher (the patron saint of travelers) were removed from the Roman Catholic Church's liturgical calendar in 1969 due to doubts that they ever lived.

Everyone from accountants to the citizens of Zaire have a patron saint. Trinity London compiled this list from multiple sources and tried to include the most well known patron saints in this list, but please forgive any omissions as this will be an expanding feature on the website.
