6 New Catholic Saints in October, 2010

The mention of St. Endelienta in my last post reminded me that there are some canonizations coming up. In two months, we’ll have six new saints:

  • Mary MacKillop (1842-1909), who will be the very first Australian saint.
  • André Bessette (1845-1937), founder of Saint Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal.
  • Stanisław Sołtys (1433-1489) of Poland.
  • Cándida María de Jesús (1845-1912) of Spain.
  • Giulia Salzano (1846-1929) of Italy.
  • Camilla Battista da Varano (1458-1524) of Italy.

The canonization is scheduled for 17 October 2010.

The last canonization, in October of 2009, included Father Damien of Molokai.
