Living liturgically means finding ways, big or small, to incorporate the rhythm of the Church year into our daily lives. One such example from the past year was celebrating All Saints’ Day, a beautiful Holy Day of Obligation that honors the men and women who have completed their early pilgrimage and who intercede for all of us today.
Even though our school celebrates Holy Days of Obligation by taking the day off to rest and spend the day with family, our students were encouraged to come dressed as a saint to celebrate All Hallow’s Eve!
Did you know that trick-or-treating began as a Catholic tradition in England? As an extra treat, several teachers were also stationed throughout the school, handing out sweets during the lunch period. According to tradition, when you receive a treat, you also agree to pray for the souls of the person’s deceased family members. It’s a good reminder for us all to pray for the holy souls in purgatory!
Check out the photos below of some of our students and see if you can guess the saints. St. Ambrose students and faculty are a real TREAT!
