The second graders at St. Christopher School in Northeast Philadelphia completed their annual research assignment Oct. 30 by dressing as the saint of their choice and wearing a costume during a Mass at the parish church, celebrated by the pastor, Msgr. Joseph Garvin.
The learning activity integrated different curricular areas and allowed the students to do and show what they learned. Over the past few weeks the students selected a saint, conducted research, created a report, designed a costume (perhaps with help) and delivered the report in the character of the saint.
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.
