Rosary from Living Rosary Celebration

We have a tradition at our school to recite a Living Rosary at Church. This month 500 of our our students gathered with our parish priest, teachers, and parents for this special celebration to honor Mary.  Students from all grade levels k-8 have the opportunity to lead the prayers of the rosary. Selected students hold roses for each prayer and after the prayer is said, students place their rose in a vase.  This photo was taken after the Living Rosary as we were walking back to school.

The Blessing of the Rosaries

Father came to visit our class to bless our new Twine Rosaries. He blessed them with Holy Water. He actually blessed the water in this bucket before us. He also taught us why he added salt to the water. We learned that the Holy Water 'flinger' is called the Aspergillum. Father reminded us to bless ourself whenever we have Holy Water.

  • Take a picture of a rosary. It might be yours, or it might belong to someone in your family.
  • Tell us something about the rosary: Is there a story behind it? When did you receive it? Why is it important to you?
  • Email the picture to Remember that the subject line of the email will become the title of the blog post.
  • Be sure to include:
    • Your city and school
    • Your grade
  • Keep checking back to see what others have posted.
