October is the month of the Rosary. Catholics pray the rosary because it is a powerful prayer to God through our mother Mary. In our Religion/Music class with Mr. Guokas, 3rd grade made rosaries with beads and strings to bring home. We practiced the rosary in preparation for our whole school prayer service where we recited the prayers that go with each bead. We learned that the 10 beads represent 10 Hail Mary’s which is called a decade. Students also received their own rosary to practice in class.
