New Saints for All Saints Day
It's not too early to start planning for All Saints Day which will be celebrated on November 1st. It is timely to speak of this as this weekend Pope Francis will canonize some new Saints. Among the more well-known will be Bishop Oscar Romero and Pope Paul VI. Of course, Popes have canonized Saints from all around the world so there is no limit to Saints that one can choose as one's patron.

Help learners choose a saint and learn about them. By engaging them in some questions about their own interests, they can be led to find a saint who can be a role model for them to follow Jesus. How have you celebrated All Saints Day with young learners at your parish?
