Saint’s Biography

Saint Peter Chanel was born on July 12, 1803 in a peasant family in France. He was the fifth of eight children and worked as a shepherd for his father’s sheep from the age of seven.

Because of his unusual intelligence and piety, Peter was discovered by his parish priest who was given parental permission to teach the boy at the little Latin school.

Peter joined the Meximieux seminar. Peter was assigned to Crozet, a parish in decline; he turned it around, in part because of his ministry to the sick, and brought a spiritual revival.
