November is the month when we think about different saints. What is a saint?  A saint is someone who is a great example of how to live our Christian faith.  Our Church tells us that they must now be in heaven.

  All saints, known and unknown, are celebrated on 1 November. It is a Holy Day of Obligation and this means that we should go to Mass on that day.  All Saints Day is celebrated all over the Christian world but in different ways.  In Poland and France, flowers are taken to the graves of people who have died.  In Portugal, children receive gifts of cakes, sweets and nuts, by going door to door.

  The following day, All Soul’s Day, is when we remember those who have died and are continuing their journey to heaven.

  November is often thought of as the month of remembrance and 11 November is Remembrance Day when we remember those who have died in wars. Can you remember what flower we use to remember those who have died in wars?

  There are lots of different activities for you this month.  You may need the help of a grown-up for some, but others you should manage on your own.

I Wonder …

I wonder how we remember someone who has died?

I wonder what we can do if we feel sad or alone?

I wonder how the Saints knew what choices to make in their lives?
