I’m probably in the wrong in forum…so I apologize in advance. Does anyone know who the Saint for teachers is?

Thanks in advance



A Google on “patron saint of teachers” resulted in many hits. :slight_smile:


St. Thomas Aquinas would be a good place to start…


According to, St. Gregory the Great and St. John Baptist de la Salle


Thanks everybody…:thumbsup:


Very good site for such information:


I would throw in St. Albert the Great, the teacher of St. Thomas Aquinas! :slight_smile:

I would imagine all the Doctors (meaning "teachers’–the title is kind of like a ph.d. :D) of the Church would be good. Here’s website about all 33:


Pope Gregory the Great.
