To encourage an awareness of Catholic practices
The children will identify that a shrine is a sacred site.
A shrine at Auriesville, in northern New York State, honors the place where the Jesuit priest Isaac Jogues and his companions Rene Goupil and Jean de la Lande were martyered, as well as where Kateri Tekakwitha lived. The Auriesville shrine has statues of Saint Isaac Jogues and Tekakwitha, memorials on the sites of the martyrdoms, Stations of the Cross, and a retreat house.
May want to split students into groups to work on a poster, and be sure to provide enough poster boards for each group.
