Not too many saints out there on Oct. 31

A few days before Halloween I asked readers to send in photos if they or their children were dressing up as a saint or angel for the occasion. On our annual trick-or-treating venture to the Mall of America, I didn’t see any saints. I did see one angel, but only one. One person that read my request did dress up and responded with a photo. Pictured below is Zoya, from Anchorage, Alaska, dressed as Saint Patrick. Thanks Zoya for letting us see your awesome costume!

I’m sure there were many more kids in saint costumes on All Saints Day. Fifth-grade faith formation students at Guardian Angels in Chaska held a costume contest. They had everyone from Saint Mary to Blessed Mother Teresa and many more. They sent us the photo below.

If you have photos from a church or school program, feel free to send them in, I’ll keep track of them and post a gallery when I get a few. Send them to towalskid@archspm.org.

    I love the St. Patrick photo. The snakes on his shepherd’s hook are awesome!
