Holy Family Regional Catholic School in Levittown, Bucks County came up with an innovative way to learn about the saints on Nov. 1, All Saints Day, in a “living saints museum:” Eighth graders researched then portrayed a saint and talked about the saint’s life with the school’s younger students, accompanied by upperclassmen guiding the children through the school’s gymnasium.
Parishioners from nearby parishes including St. Frances Cabrini and Queen of the Universe also stopped by the museum before or after holy day Masses. (Photos by Mary Beth Malloy)
