It features San Pasqual figure created from weathered cast stone stone holding a hand forged fork, spoon, and bird, on a removable stand. Measures approximately 6" x 6" x 12". San Pasqual Patron Saint of Kitchens is also the patron saint of cooks, sheep, shepherds, and Eucharistic congresses and affiliated associations.

Born into poverty as Paschal Baylon in 1540, San Pasqual Patron Saint of Kitchens lived a life of humble servitude. He often shared his food with the poor.

His commitment to the faith sent him to France, where he defended the Real Presence against heretics. He served as a shepherd, cook, porter, gardener, and alms beggar.

Many people claim to have witnessed miracles at his tomb. These miracles, paired with San Pasqual's kindness and generosity towards the poor and sick, and his unwavering dedication to the Holy Eucharist, led to his canonization in 1690.

His feast is now observed annually on May 17.

This San Pasqual Saint statue is the perfect addition to any kitchen.
