Are any of these holy people from your hometown?
Over the past year Aleteia has written at least 49 articles highlighting 49 people of the United States who have been canonized or are in the process of canonization. Many of these saints were born on American soil, while others came from others countries to toil and labor in this country until their death.
As 2017 comes to a close, take a look at the following list and discover the lives of these holy Americans. You may find out one of the saints was born in your hometown!
[Author’s Note: This list is constantly changing as more causes for canonization are initiated by local dioceses. If we are missing a cause from this list, let us know! We would love to add more inspiring articles in the future.]
