Christian Feast Days

See also: Forms of Address for Clergy ... Christian Glossary ... Religions of the World
Feast days and other celebrations - The Calendar of Saints. In general, the Roman Catholic church refers to people with the title "Saint", such as in "The Feast of Saint Francis de Sales", while Anglicans usually do not use a title and just use a name, such as in "The Feast of Francis de Sales". In cases where both traditions honor the same person on the same day, this page includes "Saint" rather than repeating the name, but you won't see "Saint" in an Anglican or Episcopalian environment. The Roman Catholic reference to "pope" is synonymous with the Anglican reference to "bishop of Rome" before the Reformation. The year of death is provided where known.
