Arizona Rosary Celebration

The 2nd Annual Rosary Celebration was held at St.Augustine's Cathedral in Tucson on Sat., Oct. 20th. Sr. Carol and Elizabeth Bowers, one of the 6th grade students at All Saints Catholic School, helped to lead the 3rd decade of the rosary.  A religious Sister and a student introduced each decade and a priest or deacon prayed the decade.

Elizabeth and her mom, Rachel, who is a teacher at All Saints Catholic School. She is one of three teachers from All Saints in the RCIA program. Sr. Carol is the proud sponsor of two of the teachers.

The Cathedral was packed with people from all over the diocese. Before the ceremony I had time to take pictures of some of the beautiful statues of some modern day saints.

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calutta

St. Mother Katharine Drexel

St.  Juan Diego

Our newest saint-Lily of the Mohawks -  St. Kateri Tekawitha
