Are your kids coloring saint pictures? Did you wish to color pictures of saints when you were a child?
I did. I loved coloring for the sake of coloring, and I learned to color well; but I had had only silly coloring books. Many had ugly pictures and it was hard to finish the whole book.
We've re-purposed pictures from wonderful old books; the kind that invite you to color in the scenes for book reports, saint stories, and other catechism projects.
The Roman Catholic saints are those Catholics who've made it to Heaven. They've done what God commanded and used His sacraments. They are Catholic heroes and children love their stories. Use our coloring pages to teach your kids about the saints.

Canonized saints are the main saints that Catholics venerate. There are so many other saints that have not been "processed" that the Catholic Church has given them their own very special feast day – All Saints' Day celebrates the many saints who are in Heaven but who have not been officially canonized. It is so important that it is a Catholic holy day of obligation. It is the day from which Halloween got its name – All Hallow's Eve – hallow means holy as in the Our Father prayer.
All Saints Day is a very fun day for children when they've chosen a saint to study and make a costume to have an All Saints Day party. It's also fun to be able to say to those you meet after Mass, "Happy feast day." We're each likely to have a namesake saint amongst "all" the saints in Heaven since the Church asks us to use saints names at Baptism and Confirmation.
These female saint coloring pages can be used for various saints who were nuns and virgins. Use a nun coloring page to teach about vocations as well as your favorite saints who were nuns.
These saint coloring pages are handy for other male saints, too. These pictures can represent popes, cardinals, monks and saints who were writers.
By the grace of God our family has learned to put many of our old Catholic saint coloring pages online for your convenience and they're all free.

Remember that some of the Catholic saints images can be used for other saints. There are some male and female saints whose images will work for different saints - especially those of the same era or religious order.
You can use these coloring pages about the Catholic saints:
Choose the images according to the stories that you're teaching and print for the feast day of the month.
The more that your children are acquainted with the Catholic saints, the better they are able to imitate them and their virtues. Tell little ones about the saints in a Catholic picture book and, if it is written so that a child will not be scandalized, encourage older and more capable children to read it for themselves. Studying the saints is an awesome way to teach Catholic history, too.
I find that it is very useful to have the children learn about many different saints during the years before the year that they begin their Confirmation preparation so that they have an idea of different patrons from which to choose. You can steer their choice of a patron saint according to your child's temperament and other qualities or events in their lives.
These are free. You can also download more kinds of Catholic coloring pages at our main coloring page below or buy the bundle here:
