The Spanish teacher from St. Norbert School, Paoli, Miss Lauren Wisniewski, had a special project remembering those who have gone to God. This project was made for All Soul’s Day.
We at Saint Norbert School made this altar to celebrate the Day of the Dead. We used photos of Saints such as St. Norbert, St. Hubert and St. Katharine Drexel. The students in each grade were responsible for making one of the necessary items for the altar. We made Marigolds, cut paper, crosses, and skeletons and the older students were asked to bring in candles and bread. All of the students enjoyed learning about the customs and culture of Mexico and they enjoyed comparing the Day of the Dead to the American holiday of Halloween.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
