St. Paul, Minnesota, is named not for the original apostle but for Paul Bunyan, sainted in 1923 by Pope Pius XI. While Bunyan’s lumbering exploits are well-known, his pious deeds are less known. He quietly supported crippled loggers, founded a school for orphaned Native Americans, and campaigned for raising the minimum wage.
