This week we are learning about the rosary. Over time many religions have used prayer beads or other items to focus their prayer. Catholics use rosary beads to track their progress through prayers, so the mind can wander spiritually in a meditative state of mind. Each student is receiving a World Mission Rosary to learn on and keep.
