Happy All Saints Day (weekend)! We celebrate all the holy men and women who have gone before us, now gathered before the throne of God praying for us. All Souls Day then invites us to pray for those who have died, completing the connection between the Church Militant, Church Triumphant, and Church Suffering.
I just switched out our little prayer table by reusing a resource from last school year, and it reminded me that you might like to use them too!
I had made these Saint pennants for my students celebrating their Confirmation Saints, but I saved and tweaked the files, and then printed them 1/4 the size to make the little mini Saint pennant banner pictured above. The collection has 50 pennants and there is more info below about how to make your own if a favorite Saint isn't included.

If you would like a banner for a Saint you don't see, or would like to change colors, etc., I've also got this editable version:
And also black and white coloring pages:
Here's how the pennants looked displayed on my classroom door for my Confirmation students last year. I don't have a color printer, but have found that some things are worth sending to the office store to have printed. ;)
