Saint Adrian through the eyes of the Saint Joseph Boondael School

Saint Adrian through the eyes of the Saint Joseph Boondael School

Built close to a chapel of the same name already in existence in the 15th century, Saint Adrian’s Church contains numerous treasures that have left a lasting impression on the pupils of the nearby École Saint-Joseph Boondael. From April to June 2018, accompanied by the school’s teaching staff, they carried out several projects connected with Saint Adrian’s. They made a video report presenting the church, in addition to models of certain parts of the building; they created artistic works and reproductions of stained glass windows; they produced a comic strip inspired by the altarpieces recounting the martyrdom of Saint Christopher and Saint Adrian, and they created chasubles reflecting the collection of beautiful old chasubles made of gold thread owned by the church. All this work will be presented during the weekend, along with the video report made at the school while the pupils were creating their pieces. Tours of a collection of 15th century altarpieces will be provided by the site’s usual guides, as well as by the pupils.
A highly unique way of learning about a site brimming with history.

A partnership between Saint Adrian’s Church and the École Saint-Joseph Boondael.
