Students celebrate All Saints DaySeventh and eighth grade students at St. Mary’s Catholic School celebrated All Saints Day, a Catholic celebration of saints, with an annual wax museum Nov. 1.

According to a written statement from the school, the students choose and researched a saint who they dressed as after preparing a short bio of them. People could visit the “wax museum” where students tell them about their chosen saint.

Religion teacher Lori Dohanich said the project helps students see another side of saints.

“All our students find saints with whom they can identify and portray, and hopefully emulate,” Dohanich said.
