WHO IS A PATRON SAINT? A saint whose name is the same, similar to, or the origin of your name.
I BET A LOT OF NAMES DON'T HAVE PATRON SAINTS. You're wrong.
Is your name on this list? Booth, Buchanan, Bahati, Beech, Bosworth, Cherokee, Egypt, Fairbanks, Hooper, Hezekiah, Goliath, Jethro, Journey, Kerenhapppuch, Nairn, Nebula, Oram, Painter, Peaches, Psyche, Quaashie, Rebel, Roper, Spangler, Sparky, Tecumseh, Toshiro, Tuesday, Tex, Topsy, Whistler, Whoopie. If your name is not on this list, you have a patron saint.
WHAT IF MY NAME IS ON THAT LIST? Then your patron saint would be the saint of your middle name.
YOU MEAN YOU CAN GIVE ME A PATRON SAINT'S STORY FOR MODERN, TRENDY NAMES LIKE ASHLEY, JESSICA, LATOYA, JADE, BRITTANY, CRYSTAL, WHITNEY, VANNA, HALEY, KELLY, AND CASEY? Yes.
MY PRIEST TOLD ME THAT MY NAME IS NOT A SAINT'S NAME. Many people do not realize that most names are derived from names of saints. We have over 10,000 names for which we can provide stories.
WHAT WILL THE STORY BE LIKE? Like the sample story , printed on parchment like paper, only large enough to fit into an 8 x 10 inch frame if you wish to frame your story.
SO THE STORIES WOULD MAKE NICE GIFTS. Absolutely. People use these stories for baptisms, First Communions, Confirmations, RCIA, birthdays, All Saints Day, and Christmas.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THESE TO COME? Usually about two to three weeks.
HOW DO I ORDER? Make a list of the names for which you would like stories. Write clearly. Send the list to Saints' Stories, Inc., 520 Oliphant Lane, Middletown RI 02842-4600 (phone: 401/849-5421).
Include your name, address, phone number, and donation of your choice.
HOW MUCH MONEY SHOULD I SEND? Saints' Stories, Inc., is a national, nonprofit, tax exempt 501c3 organization that subsists solely on donations. People have donated anywhere from 50 cents to ten dollars per story. Thank you for your contribution and may God bless you!
