Students at Our Lady of the Rosary (OLR) Catholic School Wyoming took part in the Annual Global Rosary Relay on June 19.
The Global Rosary Relay is a tradition of the Catholic faith for the sanctification of priests on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Now in its eleventh year, the Relay is one of the significant devotional initiatives within the Catholic Church and recognises the work of priests around the world.
It’s also symbolic for circling the world in prayer.
More specifically, each participating prayer location prays a particular mystery of the Rosary at a particular half hour on the day and, according to tradition, by midnight the entire world will have been encircled in prayer.
OLR Wyong Principal, Bernard Cumming, said Year 3 students led the school community through this year’s Relay.
“Year 3 lead the community in a decade of the Rosary via Zoom.
“They were joined by all classes K-6 and many of our parents and carers.
“Many people from other locations within our diocese and in many other countries also participated in the Annual Global Rosary Relay,” Cumming said.
