SJS presents Living Wax Museum

In celebration of the Solemnity of All Saints, Thursday, Nov. 1, Saint James Catholic School presented a Living

Living Wax Museum Wax Museum at the school.

 

More than 30 saints were represented, including Saints Cecilia, Joan of Arc, Francis of Assisi and more. Seventh graders will dress the part, and once their information button is pressed, will tell a brief story about the life of the saint.

 

“Saints are very important to the tradition of the Catholic church,” said Sister Marie Hannah, SJS principal. “We teach our students about the lives of the saints to help them better understand what it means to be a disciple of Christ.”

 

The annual Solemnity of All Saints feast recognizes and celebrates all saints, as recognized by the Catholic Church.

 

“Through activities such as these we teach our students about the history of the Church,” Sister Marie Hannah said. “But, also, they learn that holiness is possible for everyone.”
