Greeting card companies have come up with ways to acknowledge everyone in your life for everything from climbing the Himalayas to graduating from Kindergarten – but say you want to pay homage to someone in a personal and unique way? My Secular Saint makes it easy to recognize those people or animals in your life who have had a profound impact on the lives of those around them. Our simple and affordable canonization process allows you to give a heartfelt, fun, unique gift that is sure to be remembered and appreciated for decades to come.
How Does it Work?
If a special person or animal in your life comes to mind who ought to be a saint for some particular reason, submit an application and tell us about the candidate and the “miracles” worthy of sainthood. One of our arbiters will review your application to determine whether the person or pet you’ve nominated for sainthood is suitable for recognition from My Secular Saint. Once approved, you send in the fee and your selection ends up with an official certificate and a place in the Halls of Saints. The path to sainthood is just that easy.
How Much Does it Cost?
My Secular Saint offers one of the most unique gifts imaginable for a price that anyone can afford. Once your sainthood application is accepted, there is a $15 canonization fee to be paid online. That’s it. There are no additional charges or hidden fees, and no extra costs to maintain sainthood after the canonization is complete. For less than most of the “bargain gifts” in stores, you can give the unique gift of sainthood to a person or even to a pet you care deeply about.
What Do I Get?
A better question is, “What does my loved one get?” After paying the $15 canonization fee, the secular saint you’ve promoted will receive an Official Certificate of Sainthood as well as a listing in the Secular Sainthood Hall of Saints, not to mention the bragging rights and sense of pride that comes with the title of “Saint”. As for you, you get the joy and satisfaction of making those closest to you feel appreciated for their good deeds, unique qualities, or impressive accomplishments.
What Do You Need from Me?
After our “umpires” have a chance to review and approve your sainthood application, we ask that you provide us a short description of the new saint as well as a photo to be displayed in the Hall of Saints. We also ask that you come up with a name for the saint. If you need help coming up with a unique and descriptive saint name, we’re happy to assist you.
Which Hall is Right for My Saint?
My Secular Saint offers nine different Halls to choose from. Because you know the saint better than we do, we ask that you designate which Hall you would like your loved one to be commemorated in. Here’s a brief description of the different homes in the Secular Sainthood Hall of Saints:
