There are new mobile applications for Catholic families.  "Saint Names for Your Baby" offers a database search of 1,000 saints’ biographies and feast days. "Confirmation Names" helps young adults choose their saintly namesakes as they prepare for the sacrament of confirmation, and the "Patron Saints" app is another new resource to learn about the Church’s holy men and women. Each is $0.99 at the iTunes Store, courtesy of Our Sunday Visitor.
