Rosaries Made by Children

7 Feb

CatholicSchoolsWeekCatholic Schools Week was celebrated in many parts of the United States during the week of January 31 to February 6, 2016.  It was a week to honor the honor the teachers who serve in these schools and the way in which they bring  a Catholic perspective to all areas of the curriculum.

During Catholic Schools Week, several schools displayed rosaries made by their students. The large paper rosary pictured could be seen on a wall in a Pennsylvania school.  Children of the school made paper roses which they arranged to form the beads of a rosary.

Did schools in your area make rosaries during Catholic Schools Week?  You are welcome to post pictures of rosaries made by children in the comment section of this blog.

    I was not fortunate enough to go to parochial school, so maybe that’s why I’ve never heard of schoolchildren making rosary beads — what a great idea and these are lovely!
