Gold Award Spotlight: “The Saint Awareness Project”

Girl Scout Ambassador Sorenna earned the Gold Award, through her project titled “The Saint Awareness Project.” Sorenna was inspired to write and illustrate a book for students at St. Bede Catholic Church in James City County, Virginia to help them better understand their faith.

“I wanted to help middle school youth in my church become aware of the saints in the Catholic Church to help them on their faith journey and help them choose their confirmation saint, one of the most important things to do in the Church,” Sorenna Said.

She brought awareness to the ten newly canonised saints in a self-illustrated and self-written book in hopes that students will look beyond traditional options and consider another saint for their faith development. Each of the ten saints has a biography and descriptions of their journeys to sainthood she hopes students will find exciting and inspiring.

Copies of her book were given to local churches and Catholic libraries for students to enjoy for years to come!

Congratulations, Sorenna!
