DCC 7th Graders Celebrate the Lives of the Saints

DCC+7th+Graders+Celebrate+the+Lives+of+the+Saints

This week the seventh graders presented saint projects to their classmates.  Mrs. Jodi Stewart has included the Lives of the Saints Unit as an opportunity for her students to learn and share about saints  and the canonization process in her theology curriculum. After researching and writing about a saint, the students dressed up and spoke as though they were the saint of their choice.  Students also created props of symbols related to the saint as visual aids in their presentations.

Some saints that were chosen were Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. Theresa of Avila, St Veronica, and St. Ignatius of Loyola.  Mrs. Stewart hopes that the projects will “help them develop a love and admiration for the saints, and be inspired by their heroic virtues”
