Each year on Halloween, Saint Margaret’s Fellowship hosts an All Saints Eve Party. Children dress up as a saint and play saint related games such as: St. Peter’s Fishing Hole, Saint Bingo, and St. Therese’s Rose Toss. There is also a parade of saints and a Litany of Saints where children say the name of their saint and everyone responds, pray for us.
This year, I was Bl. Kateri Tekakwitha. I made my own costume and Maria’s St. Joan of Arc costume and Alexander’s St. John the Baptist costume.
My friend Grace and I were in charge of Pin the Bread in St. Elizabeth’s Basket (inspired by the way St. Queen Elizabeth secretly took bread to the poor) and the Halo Toss. First I ran the bread game. The tape on the bread was so worn out it wouldn’t stick to the picture of St. Elizabeth, so I had to constantly grab the bread from all over the place along with tying the blindfold on. Then Grace and I switched, and I worked at replacing the heads and wings on the angels that wouldn’t stay until the party ended. It was fun work.
