Patron Saint Gifts
St. Patrick’s Guild carries items related to over 100 patron saints. A patron saint is a holy person dedicated to a particular cause or group. For example, St. Christopher is the patron saint of athletes, so it is common for those engaged in sports to wear a St. Christopher patron saint medal or carry a St. Christopher patron saint card. Likewise, St. Joseph is the patron saint of real estate, so people engaged in home sales or purchases will utilize St. Joseph statues or prayers. Many countries also have a patron saint and many people are named for certain saints, making that particular saint their patron. Patron saint gifts are, by their very nature, a personalized gift, as they signify something important to the gift recipient – their name, nationality, hobby, or career!
Popular patron saint gifts, as mentioned, are cards, medals, and statues. Other patron saint gifts include pocket tokens, plaques, and books (both prayer and biography).
