Saints of the Greek Orthodox Church

The saints and the angels are an important part of the Greek Orthodox church and faith. All baptised Greeks are named after a saint, and so the name day is celebrated rather than the birthday.

The saints are divided into six main categories: 1) The Apostles 2) The Prophets 3) The Martyrs 4) The Fathers & Hierarchs 5) The Monastics 6) The Just. In Iconography they are usually dressed accordingly.

Below is a list of saints that are venerated in the Greek Orthodox religion, and you can read about who they were. Perhaps you are named after one of them...To find out what their names are in Greek, please look at the page Greek Name days.
