One aspect of our school and parish that I marveled at when I arrived on the scene two years ago was the great importance that was placed on holy days of obligation. This was especially true with the approach to the Feast of All Saints. At a time when secular celebrations around Halloween often overshadow the significance of the feast days of All Saints, Prince of Peace embraces the importance of this day, which is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. Our most important objective as a school is to help all of our students get to heaven. This feast day serves as an inspiration to seek first His kingdom, and to lean on the support of all the saints in heaven to lead us.
To that end, we have a weeklong saintly celebration to bring the message home to our students and families.
We have a wonderful "All Saints Week" planned:
Monday: All Saints Day School Mass- 8.30a (don't forget Mass uniforms!)
Tuesday: Movie Day- Religious themed movie with popcorn in classrooms
Wednesday: Holy Rosary recitation around the playground statue of Mary: Middle School: 8.30-8.50a; 3rd-5th: 9-9.20a; K4-2nd: 9:30-9:50
Thursday: Seed Paper activity in classrooms (students will put together personal prayers on seed paper that they can take home and plant).
Friday: All Saints Parties in classrooms; 2.15p Parade of Saints around campus leading to the PAC; Litany of Saints Prayer Service in the PAC following the parade.
