Get ready for a throwdown of biblical proportions!
WILL YOUR PARISH WIN???
Cast your vote for the top saints in four divisions: Last year, we picked the saints based on categories (family saints, consecrated saints...). This year YOU DID! The saints in our 2016 bracket are based off parish names across the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Check back each week to vote for YOUR saint! We will tally the votes and determine which saint reigns supreme.
How we made the 2016 bracket: To save space, saints with the same name were lumped together (so whether you are St. Francis of Assisi or St. Francis de Sales, you can both vote for "St. Francis"). Since Joseph won last year, we kept him out of the running this year. Same with mother Mary, sorry. There are just too many parishes with the her name and there were only so many spaces in the bracket... If we missed your parish, there's always next year...
Weeks 1 and 2 decided our first round victors, with several dominating matches,
and some close matchups with only a couple votes separating the results. Now we vote on Round 2!
