During our two week summer School of Religion Program each grade took an hour and a half on Thursday to go to a “saints museum”.   5 different people dressed us a various saints and spent 15 minutes a piece sharing about their life (in the first person).  The saints were: St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. George, St. Veronica, St. Gianna Molla and Blessed Frassati.  We received a lot of positive feedback regarding our saints museum.  We gave out a holy card or medal as a way to encourage devotion to those saints.

I believe it is so important to helps kids fall in love with the saints because they inspire us to live for Christ and be saints ourselves.   All of us, by virtue of our Baptism are called to be saints.
