Catholics around the city are celebrating All Saints Day and St. Francis Xavier in Old Metairie goes all out.

The students picked their favorite Catholic saint and came to school dressed as him or her. The students also had to prepare a report about their saint of choice.

All Saints Day is a Catholic holiday to honor the saints and here in New Orleans, Catholics bless local cemeteries and spruce up tombs and graves.
