Click on the points in the interactive map below to learn more about the saints and saints-to-be who have connections to New York state in general or to the Diocese of Rochester in particular. Each pop-up box contains an image as well as biographical information. The map will be updated periodically as sainthood causes move forward and as new causes are opened.

Did you forget my patron Saint Kateri Tekakwitha in your map?

Hi Colleen, St. Kateri Tekakwitha is pinned to the map in Fonda, west of Schenectady. Thanks for your interest in the map. -Sam Oldenburg

I was just going to ask about St Kateri also, and I read the 2 comments already posted asking about her! She is a wonderful model for today's youth. And to think she was born and raised here in America, in the wilderness! And she was an orphan. Her whole life is a miracle! Mary K.vnlwb
