Why have a Patron Saint for your Child?

You will hear in the creed, when it is said at Mass, that we believe in the Communion of Saints. This means we are spiritually united with those who have died and are now in heaven. They can act as intercessors-they have the ability to assist us and pray for us. By choosing a saint's name you acknowledge this fact and ask a particular saint to assist you in bringing up your child; the saint becomes the child's patron- and a role model for your child.
