All Saints Day is the day on which Catholics celebrate all the saints. In recognition, eighth-graders from St. Peter R.C. School researched and dressed up as a favorite saint. 

Each student was asked to remain in costume as the saint of his or her choice throughout the day. Under the direction of eighth-grade teacher Tanya Okoniewski, the students presented their saints during Mass to the entire school, educating their fellow students about the personal history of each saint and the impact the saints made.
