For more than 200 years, the Church in New York has nurtured the faith giving rise to people who have lived and worked among us, and are now recognized as saints or are on their way to sainthood. The number may be more than you may think!
If you are interested in learning more about the process of canonization, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has a pdf resource called How the Church Recognizes Saints. An informative video called Path to Sainthood is available online from Religion & Ethics Weekly website.
