Approaching the Feast of All Saints

As we approach the Feast of All Saints, it is great fun discuss the holy men and women our young ones wish to emulate. Many of my "internet friends" have already begun discussing costume ideas. Here are a few photos from last years All Saint's Day party at our parish.

Meet: St. Joan of Arc


The Blessed Virgin Mary


St. Joseph


St. Maximilian Kolbe


And, of course, St. Michael the Archangel


The costumes were all created with materials readily available at home (we have an assortment of plastic armor and swords...all obtained at the dollar store). Even St. Michael's wings were quite easy: silver poster board reinforced with coat hanger wire, sandwiched between the layers and hot-glued.

I'm not quite sure whom the children will choose this year...we will be having that discussion on Tuesday. I'll keep you posted!
