Views from the Pews: Who is your favorite saint?

In “Views from the Pews,” we catch up with parishioners across the diocese and ask them a faith based question. This week, we asked our social media followers the question: “Who is your favorite saint and why?” Below are a few of our favorite responses.

“St. Catherine of Siena. That’s my parish and I always connected with her! She always stayed true to herself and followed God’s plan without any wavering. She’s so inspiring for dedicating her life to Christ!”

-Rachael Kriger, parishioner at St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Crescent Township

“St. Bernadette! She is the first saint I read about as an adult. I could relate to her simplicity!”
