The Saints Come Marching In
On November 1, the Saints came marching in to St. Francis de Sales School. In order to celebrate All Saints Day, the second grade Communion class of 2012 came to school dressed as the saint of their choice. In order to prepare for the day students were required to research a saint, complete a written report, and give an oral presentation to their class.
The entire school celebrated the Holy Day at mass together. The second grade saints were part of the procession and after the homily several students were chosen to stand on the altar while an upperclassman read a brief biography about the particular saint.
It was a beautiful, saintly celebration.
