Saints Names

Selecting a Saint's Name.

The choice of a saint’s name is entirely up to the parents and child. It is not mandatory to choose the name of a saint, however this activity can help the child to come to know more about some men and women who have shown their love & witness to God in a special way.

A useful website to explore taking a saint’s name is then click on Saints Index.
