On May 10 we celebrate the feast day of St. Damien de Veuster. A gregarious boy, he had the heart of a missionary and was known to pray each day to become one.

Today, May 3, we celebrate the feast of Saints Philip and James. The relics of Saints Philip and James are still venerated in the crypt of the Twelve Apostles. Learn more about them in today’s post.
St. Athanasius, also called Athanasius the Great and Athanasius the Confessor, was a bishop and doctor of the church. In today’s post you’ll find a short video about him.
Today, April 29, we celebrate the feast of St. Catherine of Siena. Born on the feast of the Annunciation in 1347, St. Catherine of Siena became a stalwart voice of the Church, a shining light in one of the darkest, most turbulent periods of Christian history. She gave her short 33 years of life in service to God.
