The Holy Angels fourth graders created their own version of “The Lives of the Saints” in celebration of All-Saints Day. After choosing one of the many saints, the students learned some of the details of their saint’s life and prepared a script about their saint.
For the all-school Mass, students dressed as their saint and created an objected which symbolized their saint’s life. Following the all-school Mass, parish members and other Holy Angels students were invited to the Walnut Room where fourth graders shared their stories. Guests touched the saint’s symbol which initiated the telling of the saint’s life.
Many of the saints who were depicted are familiar, such as St. John, St. Joseph, St. Teresa of Calcutta, St. Nicholas, St. Anne, and St. Joan of Arc. Others are lesser known heroes of faith, such as St. Madeline Sophie Barat, St. Katharine Drexel, St. Sebastian, St. Rose of Lima, St. Jerome, and St. John Baptist de la Salle (not to be confused with the “other one”).
The students also shared their “saintliness” at the 8:00am Sunday Mass.
