Join the crowds watching this festival in which students from grades 2-12 celebrate the principles of courage, initiative and transformation as depicted in the story of Saint Michael. To honor these essential human capacities, the elementary, middle and high school students join in parts to perform a play of St. Michael and the Princess taking on the fearless dragon. After the play, the 12th graders will “ring the iron” and the classes will collectively throw into the fire, something they've written on pieces of paper that they wish to transform in themselves. Parents are invited to attend this outdoor spectacle to witness and support the children.
