Great Ideas: A Hall of Saints

From the TCT archives: celebrate the saints with a hallway display.

After choosing their Confirmation saints’ names, fifth-graders each made a small doll replica and dressed it up to look as the saint might have looked.

Each student wrote a profile of his or her saint’s life and presented it to the class. The dolls, along with the profiles of the saints, were displayed in the corridor for all to appreciate.
