WINSTED – Putting a twist on the school science fair, St. Anthony School sponsored a Faith Fair recently at which one could pin the tail on Jesus’ donkey, spin the Wheel-of-Faith, play Bible trivia or knock down the Seven Deadly Sins. The school’s first-ever Faith Fair gave students the chance to combine Christianity and crafts imaginatively in order to showcase topics covered in religion classes throughout the year. It provided parents the opportunity to show their youngsters the importance of faith and to celebrate student efforts at school. The fair was the brainchild of eighth- grade teacher Karen Hicks.
