You will be researching the life of a saint and producing a Google presentation which you will share with the class Monday, February 4th. To begin, visit the Calendar of Saints and select your birthdate. From the page that corresponds with your birthdate you will choose one saint to research. Be sure to look at several saints to find someone that interests you.

When you have selected the saint you will research, please complete the Google form here: Birthday Saints Project.

The presentation you will be creating should meet the following requirements:
  • minimum of 5 slides
  • minimum of 3 images total
  • maximum of 5 bullet points per slide
  • maximum of 1 bibliography slide :)
The information you will be sharing with us about your saint should include:
  • a brief biography which should include:
    • when and where they were born
    • education
    • their life's work and/or mission
    • death of the saint
  • an explanation of why they became a saint
  • the prayer for this saint (if there is one)
  • the feast day for this saint (what day of the year does the church celebrate this saint?)
  • at least one thing you admire about this saint
  • patron saint? (is he or she the patron saint of something or someone?)
