List of American saints and beatified people

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, in Washington, D.C., is the largest Catholic church in the United States. A special hall in the crypt level of the Basilica contains statues of American saints.
For more information on the process of sainthood in the Roman Catholic Church, see Canonization.

This page is a list of American saints, beati, venerabili, servants of God and candidates for sainthood of the Roman Catholic Church – that is, those significantly associated with what either was at the time, or subsequently became, the United States of America.

The Catholic Church has existed in the United States since the country's earliest history. Indeed, Columbus' expedition of 1492 included Catholic priests among the crew. Catholic missionaries were some of the first explorers in British and French colonial lands in the east, and Spanish lands in the southwest. Maryland was founded as a Catholic colony.

Catholics continue to contribute to American religious life up to the present day. Consequently, several American Catholics have been considered for sainthood over the past 500 years. Most of these Americans were born after 1850.
