Great for those times when you'd prefer not to wade through an entire encyclopedia (or fill up your device with one) to locate a patron saint, feast day, or saint name!

Some Limitations & Notes
* This app is NOT an encyclopedia - it contains information like that displayed in the applicable screenshots.
* Individuals canonized or added to the liturgical calendar more recently (e.g. after source materials were printed), made patrons more recently, or those not included in the pre-1970 Roman Martyrology index may not be included.
* The 'last/final' database update was made in 2011. No future updates are planned to the database.
* Gender is not available for all listings. [Note: Close to 90% of records contain male or female identification, the remaining (roughly 10% of) records are identified as 'unspecified'.]
* This app contains three (3) types of records as indicated above. Although some of the content will necessarily be duplicative (e.g. items from the martyrology may also appear in the liturgical calendar, items from the old calendar may also appear in the new), this does NOT mean the records themselves are duplicates. Rather, each record stands alone for each record type (note the different icons associated w/each record type). Please note that while some records may contain some duplicative data - they are NOT actually duplicates. If we were to remove supposed 'duplicates', the app could no longer provide complete listings for each record type.
