Catholic Schools Week - Our living/balloon rosary!


Happy Catholic Schools Week!

Our school kicked things off on Sunday night with a Taco/Bingo night.  We had a great turnout and I think everyone had fun.  I've got no photos to share but I can tell you the food was really good.  For the last two years, we've had it catered by the sweetest woman named Evelyn.  She works at a local grocery store chain that caters to the Hispanic population.

When you walk into this store, you feel like you are in another country.  It is really cool!  They source their produce locally and it's fresh and cheap.  And the food that they prepare in this store just looks and smells so good! In fact, they make their own tortillas fresh everyday.

So just take my word for it - the food that Evelyn prepared for us was delicious!

Yesterday we had a living/balloon rosary.  We've done the living rosary at our school for several years now but for the last two we've added the balloon portion which I think makes it really neat for the kids.

The PTO spent the morning assembling the rosary and had it all ready by the afternoon:


The whole school assembles in the gym with the older kids taking a spot at each of the beads.


The older kids takes a turn leading each bead with the rest of the school following along.
At the end of the rosary, the entire school proceeds silently outside to the soccer field where the 8th grade releases the rosary to the heavens.

And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel's hand. - Revelation 8:4

And just like the smoke of the incense and our prayers, the rosary was released to the heavens....
