All Saints Parade

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Little saints of all shapes and sizes paraded through Our Lady of Prompt Succor this morning.

In preparation for 'All Saints Day' 4th graders at the catholic school researched the lives of their favorite saints.

They dressed up and marched together after reading short biographies about their subject.

For the kids, the best part of the parade was reading up on someone from history who inspired them.  

"He's one of the apostles of Jesus and he's the champion saint of employees and tax collectors," said Matthew Alayof who was dressed as St. Matthew.

"She really inspired me about, I wanted to be Mary Mother of All Saints, but I chose St. Bernadette because I really liked her and all the wonderful things she did," said Lydia Benton, dressed as St. Bernadette. 

This is the 4th year for the Parade of Saints at Our Lady of Prompt Succor School.
