It's not entirely clear to me exactly what you are asking for here, 5pvxdq8o.

Saturn never "passes" Earth in the conventional sense. The orbit of Saturn is outside the orbit of Earth and they do not cross at any point.

Saturn orbits around the Sun once in every 29.5 Earth years. This means that Earth "passes" to the "inside" of Saturn every year and roughly 29 times for every Saturn orbit around the Sun.

Thanks for asking your question here on JustAnswer. If you have any other questions about this, please let me know.

If you are referring to 'Conjunction' whereby two celestial bodies appear near one another in the sky then only in 1962 Saturn and Earth came near to each other.

According to wikipedia, "During the new moon and solar eclipse of February 4–5, 1962,At the precise moment of the new moon/solar eclipse, five celestial bodies (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter) were clustered within 3° of each other, with the Earth in close conjunction with them".
