SAINT AGNES

Cerith Gardiner - published on 04/25/18

Reflecting on the needs of the modern teen, here are some truly inspirational women to consider taking as spiritual guides.

When choosing a Confirmation name we often look to the most familiar saints such as St. Catherine of Siena and St. Thérèse de Lisieux. While these saints are truly worthy contenders to accompany our youngsters on their spiritual journeys, we’ve come up with a list of lesser-known saints whose lives were not only inspirational, but who experienced the hardships so many teens face today. From bullying to peer pressure to taking part in something that goes against their beliefs, these wonderful women can offer great support and hope to our children as they receive this life-changing sacrament.
