Here is a slideshow of the men and women from the United States who are officially canonized saints.

The United States is a relatively new country in the history of the world, and Catholicism has only been present in this region for a few hundred years.

As a result, there are only a handful of officially canonized U.S. saints, though there are many others at various stages of the process.

Here is a slideshow that highlights the men and women who ministered in the United States and have been canonized by the Catholic Church.
