I think it’s so cute when siblings (or friends) dress up as Saints who go together in groups or pairs! It’s adorable, right? I know I’ve dressed my kids up as saints who go together, and I’ve seen my friends do it, so I wanted to make a list to help you brainstorm some ideas. So here it is- a list of Saints who were friends, family, or otherwise “go together”.
The Holy Family! As seen above, my friend dressed her children up as Mary, St. Joseph, and Baby Jesus. You could also do just St. Joseph and Mary, or just Mary and Baby Jesus. Whatever floats your boat. 😉
The Fatima Children– Jacinta, Lucia, and Francisco are the peasant children that Our Lady of Fatima appeared to. If you have a group of 4 kids, you could include Our Lady of Fatima in this group!
St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe– Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to San Juan Diego in Mexico. I have a post on making a Saint Juan Diego costume here.
St. Francis and St. Clare– If you have a boy and a girl, these costumes would make a cute pair. Read about the story of St. Francis and St. Clare here.
St. Patrick and St. Brigid- They were friends and are both Patrons of Ireland. Read more here.
St Faustina and Divine Mercy Jesus– Jesus appeared to St. Faustina. I’ve had a Divine Mercy costume idea in my head with red and blue fabric flowing down, but I’ve never made it- lol. You can find our Divine Mercy tie-dyed shirts here.
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and Sacred Heart of Jesus– This would also make a cute pair. Check out our Sacred heart t-shirts here.
Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa- because they knew each other on earth, and they’re both so super awesome. 😉
Saints Benedict and Scholastica- Actual blood twins. This would make a great brother/sister pair for costumes, even if you don’t have twins in your family.
Girl Saint Groups
St. Bernadette and Our Lady of Lourdes– Our Lady of Lourdes appeared to St. Bernadette. This would make a cute All Saints’ day pair.
St. Cecila and Angel– An angel appeared and crowned St. Cecilia and her husband with roses and lilies. One little girl gets an angel costume, the other gets a flower crown. Girls will love it!
St. Therese and Sisters/Family– She had lots of sisters and amazing parents. Read the story and choose your combination.
Nuns from the Same Order- Just dress all your girls as sisters from the same convent!
St. Agnes and Sheep- Yep, dress one girl up as St. Agnes, and your other little girl in a sheep costume. Wouldn’t that be adorable?
Saints Perpeuta and Felicity– read their story here.
St. Anne and Mary- After all, St. Anne was Mary’s mother.
Boy Saint Groups
St. Ignatius and St. Francis Xavier– they were roommates.
St. George and Dragon– One little boy gets to dress up in armor, and the other one as a dragon. What’s not fun about that?!
Apostle Saints– Saints Peter, James, John, Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James, Thaddeus and Simon… they all clearly knew each other. Dress up as any combination of these apostle Saints for a fun costume group!
Archangels– Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael.
Saints Who Go With Babies
If you have a baby, pair him/her with one of these saints:
- St. Gianna
- St. Anthony
Do you have any ideas for group saint costumes? Please leave a comment! 🙂
