Welcome to the Ave Maria Saint's Chapel

We are fortunate as Catholics to be able to rejoice in the Communion of the Saints. We have as our companions, mentors and intercessors the entire body of the elect who have gone before us into the Eternal City of God. Here you will be reminded of and reunited with friends who will be with you faithfully always and who long for you to grow in union with the Lord and to one day join with them in the enjoyment of the Beatific Vision.

Here you will find information to introduce you to Catholic saints you may not know, reacquaint you with those you may have forgotten simply rejoice to spend a few moments in recollection with them, in their holy and loving company. We will have a growing and changing gallery of saints, and new material appropriate to the season, so check back with us often. Please visit our Today's Saint page.


To help you with your devotions, we are building an index of Catholic saints for all the days of the year.
Here is a saint chosen at random....
The saint for April 29
St. Catherine of Sienna
Roman Calendar

Born: 25 March 1347 in Siena, Italy Died: 29 April 1380, aged 33.

Italian mystic, Dominican Tertiary (Third Order), Doctor of the Church. Beginning early in childhood, Catherine experienced mystical visions and practiced a life of penance. At age 16 she entered the Dominican order as a tertiary while continuing to live at home.

In 1370, in an interior vision, she was told to leave off her retired life and to begin to exhort the public figures of her time, to influence them for God. She went to Avignon and influenced Pope Gregory XI to return the papacy to Rome in 1376.

In 1375 she received the five wounds of the stigmata, visible only to herself until after her death. Though she never learned to write, she dictated hundreds of letters and a notable work, titled in English The Dialogue of Saint Catherine of Siena or A Treatise on Divine Providence . She was canonized in 1461 and declared a Doctor of the Church in 1970.
