O’HARA CATHOLIC SCHOOL’S LIVING SAINTS PROJECT
What: 18th Annual Living Saints Project presented by O’Hara 6th Graders
When: Friday, June 3, 2016; 12:30pm – 2:30pm
Where: O’Hara Catholic School; 715 West 18th Avenue
Please join us and nearly 1,000 people from all over the state who visit the school each year for a self-guided, inspirational journey of the heroes of faith, at the 18th Annual Living Saints Presentation, an internationally recognized, award-winning project.
Every spring, each sixth grade student selects a saint as the subject of focused study for three months. They write about the country their saint lived in, study ancient cartographic techniques and create antique-looking country maps, write reports about their saint’s life, and study the medieval art of illuminated manuscript and the prayerful art of iconography.
The Living Saints Presentation is an exceptional example of integrated curriculum, where students apply working knowledge across many subjects to create a significant and meaningful project.
Representing 50 Saints and Blesseds from 5 continents, students in costume will share stories, dramatic artwork, and offer inspirational examples of faith, hope and charity.
