Praying the Rosary during October

Our display to honour Mary

During the month of October we are honouring Our Lady by praying the Rosary daily in our classrooms and coming together for special assemblies to pray the Rosary together as a whole school.

On Thursday 4th October we held the first of our whole school assemblies where we prayed the rosary together as a school.  We looked at the first of the Light Mysteries together, prayed the Apostle’s Creed (a traditional prayer from Year 5) and sang to honour Mary.

One child commented, “Every time we pray the Rosary we are giving Mary a spiritual rose.”
