Saints ‘come alive’ at SJN School

Published November 13, 2014

LILBURN—Fourth-graders at St. John Neumann Regional School in Lilburn celebrated the saints by presenting the annual “Saints Wax Museum” to their classmates.

Students wrote research reports on different saints and dressed up as saints for the school Mass, processing into church while the Litany of the Saints was sung.

After Mass, the students presented their wax museum in the parish hall. Fourth-grade “saints” lined the room, striking poses reminiscent of a traditional wax museum, and would “come alive” when approached to tell the story of their saint. Students also created saint holy cards to distribute with original artwork and beautiful prayers they composed.
