Published by Loyola Press
This intergenerational parish event will foster community by bringing people of all ages together to ìmeetî the saints and grow in an understanding of the role that the saints play in the life of the Church and in our own lives. The saints are role models, the heroes of our faith. But they also were real people. Participants will learn how saints can support them on their everyday spiritual journey, and how we all have the potential to be saints.

This event is ideal for All Saints Day, but it would be engaging at any time of year. It is a particularly fruitful event for young people who are preparing for Confirmation and is a great way to involve people who may not always participate in parish activities. Parishioners of all ages can make a valuable contribution to your catechetical mission by assisting with and attending this event.

 Welcome
 Welcome! We are so glad you are here. oday we have gathered together withamilies and riends to learn about our aith and get to know some o the saints who have been among the heroes and role models o the Church.
Overview 
 Who can tell me what a saint is?
(a holy person, a model or us)
Te Churchrecognizes and honors people who showed their love or God in ways that arelasting inspirations and models or all o us. Some saints showed their love orGod in lives o service, and others showed their love by giving their lives ortheir aith. Some saints worshiped God by writing beautiul prayers that we stillpray today or by writing books that help us to learn more about God’s love orus. But in every case, the saints are people who ollowed Jesus and continuedhis work and mission in the world. Let’s see how many saints we can name rightnow.
(Invite people to name.)
O all these saints, do you know who is the greatesto all the saints?
(Mary)
Mary, the Mother o God, is the greatest o saintsbecause she always listened to God and did his will. She used her gits romGod and let everything that she said, did, or thought reect her aith in Godand her love o God.
The Saints Are Models of Holiness
Te Church honors people like Mary and the saints because they respondedto God’s grace working within them, so they were able to do amazing thingsand inspire people to know and to serve God more deeply. Why do you think the Church wants us to know about the saints?
(Te saints can inspire us and  provide good examples o how to ollow Jesus.)
Te Church gives them the ocialtitle o “saint” to let us know that these are people who show us how to liveas Christians. Saints are people whom you and I can turn to or inspiration,advice, and help in our everyday lives.
