The second graders each chose a saint to research. They wrote facts about the saint, created a saint shrine, and learned about asking saints to intercede for us and carry our prayers to Jesus for us. (They were especially excited about the battery operated candles inside their saint shrines.)
The first graders each chose a saint to research as well. They dressed up as their chosen saint and memorized facts about that saint to share with parishioners during Mass on All Saints Day.
We also celebrated with an All Saints Day party for grades K-5. Students played games like "Saint Walk," "Canonize the Saint," "Saint Bingo," and more!
