As part of the Solemnity of All Saints Day, Our Lady of Light Family is hosting a Festival of Saints.
Festival of Saints
All are invited for a free hotdog dinner, outdoor games, saint walk between saint stations, contests & door prizes, and procession into 7:00pm Mass at Incarnation Campus. Come dressed up as your favorite saint or angel. (Costumes are not required to participate.)
In the case of rain or inclement weather the festival will take place at the Incarnation PAC.
Dinner: hotdogs, chips & drinks provided
Outdoor games: Volunteer to bring your corn hole and outdoor games for all to use at the Festival of Saints. Set up on the bus parking lot next to the church offices. See Donation/Volunteer link below.
Saint Walk: A Saint Walk is a Catholic take on a Trunk or Treat. It is the walk through the parking lot between 20+ saint stations (car trunks). At each station one or more people will represent a saint and will show a picture of themselves (saint) and will introduce themselves (as saint). They will give out treats to children and challenge them.
What is involved with hosting a Saint Station?
You will pick a saint from a list of saints that have not yet been selected by another volunteer using signup genius.
You will be representing that saint by optionally dressing up or decorating your trunk
You will read a two-three sentence script to introduce your saint
You will hand out a giveaway provided to you
The script, giveaways, photo of the saint, and costume idea will be provided
Contest and prize for best saint station judged by costume/decorations, creativity, energy/entertainment
Prizes: Prizes awarded for best Saint Station and any age guest best dressed as a saint or angel.
Door Prizes: One door prize ticket will be given to each Saint Walk participant. Drop the ticket signed with your name and phone number into the door prize ticket bucket at the end of the Saint Walk. Drawing will occur between 6:30 pm and 6:45 pm.
Procession: At the end of the evening, we have a “saint” procession into the 7:00 pm Mass!
