I slept on this & figured I need to add:

The Saints passed on to Glory,& leading church members figure God set them up to help address issues from their Earthly lives.So thats the why they are patrons of the various things listed....


On the Saint Francis,the greyfriars & Friars Minor were from the order of Saint Francis,I thought I need to clarify that.

My dad got his Ed major from the Michigan State University,Wayne State U campus,Art specialty back in the early 60s.Some of his classmates took him to their singles group,with the Episcopal Church in the University neighborhood.


So he converted to Episcopal.He was raised Baptist,his moms dad was a Baptist minister.His other Granddad was a County deputy with a more established Country general store in a farming community.
