Saints Wax Museum at Saint John the Baptist School

On November 2, the eighth grade students at Saint John the Baptist Catholic School hosted a “Saints Wax Museum” in conjunction with All Saints Day & All Souls Day celebrations.

Throughout the month of November, the eighth graders learned about the process of canonization, chose a saint they knew relatively little about, and composed a report on why their saint was significant to the Catholic faith. All classes at the school were invited to attend the “Wax Museum,” where eighth grade students had prepared “elevator speeches” to teach younger students about their saints.

Teachers of younger grades had their students conduct interviews with the saints and used the project as a means of enrichment in their own lessons on the Feasts of All Saints and All Souls.
