All Hallows' Day

This is a Holy Day of Obligation on which we celebrate the Church Triumphant -- all the Saints in Heaven, canonized or unknown. 

ALL SAINTS DAY 2013

We were blessed to attend our parish festivities for All Hallow’s Eve, in preparation for All Saints’ Day. 

AllSaints2013StJoseph

St. Joseph the Carpenter led the way.  Papi came up with his own saint and costume.  It worked out nicely since his Nina gave him a wooden tool box to construct.  He used Sweetie’s robe from her Martha costume

Catacombs The Catacombs was one of our favorite activities.  A family who moved from out of state created this great activity.  They used their moving boxes to make up the Catacombs, box maze.  Each pilgrim was sent through the Catacombs with a glow stick.
