Ave Explores Series

Learn about Catholic Saints with Ave Explores

In the Apostles’ Creed we profess our belief in the Communion of Saints. But do we really know who the saints are and why the Church makes such a big deal about them? 

Ave Explores: The Saints looks at the process of canonization, how we can grow closer to the saints, and call upon them for support and prayer as we welcome them into our homes and families. We see how the Communion of Saints is far from distant, boring, or confusing, but is instead a beautiful and wonderful part of the life of the Church, and a gift to faithful, everyday Catholics who strive for holiness just like the saints.
