The St. Theresa of Avila Knights of Columbus Council 2657 recently led St. Theresa of Avila Middle School students in a living rosary at the newly constructed Rosary Garden on the church grounds in Gonzales. The sixth-through eighth-grade students, known as “God’s Warriors,” gave up their recess period to pray the Sorrowful Mysteries led by the knights. They were also joined by the fifth graders.  The knights led the Apostles’ Creed and the Our Father opening prayer and Glory Be doxology closing prayer for each of the five decades of Hail Marys. Everyone closed the rosary by praying the Hail Holy Queen. Each student introduced a Hail Mary with a phrase appropriate for the mystery about which they were praying. The next living rosary is scheduled Nov. 9, when the Glorious Mysteries will be prayed. Photo submitted by Joe Henn | KC Council 2657
