Catholic students engage in saintly behavior

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 - 12:01 am

On All Saints' Day, the fourth-graders at St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth School put on a “Wax Museum of Saints.”

Each student chose a saint, did research on that saint and later dressed as him or her. On Friday, the students lined up along the upstairs and downstairs hallways of the school. Visitors and other students pushed a red “button” on the floor in front of the saint, and the fourth-graders told the visitors some interesting facts about their saint.

The venerated included St. Maria Goretti, St. George, St. Cecilia, St. Patrick. St. Teresa of Avila, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Timothy, St. Rose of Lima, St. Kateri Tekakwitha, and more modern-day ones such as St. Gianna Beretta Molla, Blessed John Paul II and Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

The fourth graders are students of Mrs. Sarah Darling and Miss Anna Cunningham and also processed into the morning All Saints' Day Mass in their saints' costumes at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish.
