The students of SS. Philip and James School in Exton, as well as family members, gathered in the school yard to participate in a living rosary Oct. 5, in honor of the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Students represented the “beads” of the rosary, while sixth graders portrayed tableaus of the joyful mysteries of the rosary: the Annunciation, the Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth, the Birth of Jesus, the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, and the Finding of Jesus in the Temple.
Various students took turns leading the school in prayer and song.
