SAINTS AND PATRONS
Christian Names for Baptism and Confirmation
By: Joanna Bogle
At Baptism and Confirmation we take a new name. In this booklet, the well-known Catholic author and journalist, Joanna Bogle, provides an extensive list of names to choose from. She briefly introduces each saint, and reminds us that, by taking a saint's name, we are not just selecting a name we like, or a person who inspires us, but adopting a patron who is already in heaven and who can intercede for us and help us.
