Older students of the Parish Religious Education Program at St. Robert Bellarmine Parish in Warrington helped the younger children make rosaries on April 7.
Maureen Rilling, archdiocesan coordinator of the Missionary Childhood Association, led the children in praying a decade of the World Mission Rosary and shared a video from an MCA-funded school in Malawi.
Stephen Lippincott, a member of St. Robert Parish, led younger PREP students in making World Mission Rosaries for the missions as part of his Eagle Scout project.
In December he coordinated rosary-making efforts after Sunday Masses at his parish and St. Joseph in Warrington. Those rosaries, donated to the Pontifical Mission Societies in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, are being distributed in Africa and Micronesia.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
