At St. Marie’s, each class has a dedicated saint. A saint is a person who is believed to be especially close to God. All the saints were holy men and women. God gave these people special graces so that they could do special things. Some saints were prophets, or messengers of God. Others had the ability to heal. God knew these people, like He knows us. He gave these people extraordinary gifts because he was confident they would do His Will. As a school, we will learn about the work of God’s chosen friends, talk to them in prayer and take inspiration from them. Click on your Class Saint to read key facts.
