The Saint Faith's Directory



Latest update: September 4th, 2012 (added website for St Faith's, Gaywood, Norfolk)



This list records all the churches and chapels worldwide of which we are aware, functioning or closed, dedicated wholly or in part to our patron, Saint Faith. It has been co0mpiled from a variety of sources and we update it whenever possible.

Other churches are welcome to make any use they wish of this list (as some have already done): an acknowledgement would be appreciated....

Those named in red below are described, illustrated or referred to on our 'Saint Elsewhere' page, or where indicated alongside, have websites to visit. The 'Saint Elsewhere' page also records all changes to the Saint Faith's list, as well as other additions, revisions and updates.

To find out what we know about Saint Faith herself, with pictures of paintings and statues in various locations worldwide, click here.
