All Saints’ Day at MAA

 

 

 

It’s All Saints’ Day at MAA and that means some pretty incredible individuals visited campus today. Our day of celebration began with Mass in the auditorium led by MAA’s 4th graders, who all dressed up as a saint. They did a beautiful job singing and reading during Mass. Thank you, Mrs. Moore, for planning such a beautiful liturgy and  Fr. Daniel Hennessey for leading us in prayer.

Following Mass, our 4th graders returned to their homerooms to give presentations on their saints in front of their families and classmates. We heard the inspiring stories of Mother Teresa, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Patrick, St. Clare, and more.

The All Saints’ Day celebration is one of the oldest traditions here at MAA. Not only do our children get the chance to practice public speaking, but also be inspired by these true stories of faith and courage. What a great way to celebrate our school’s  Franciscan and Catholic heritage.

None of this would have been possible without the guidance, support, and organization of our 4th-grade teachers, Mrs. Caruso and Mr. Doyle. Huge thanks also go out to our 4th-grade teachers and room parents for planning the wonderful post Mass reception.
