Children of Mary Rosary Group at the Good Shepherd Church Arnold, Nottingham

For the month of October, the Good Shepherd Children's Liturgy Group launched its inaugural Rosary Group for the Children of the Parish. It has been gratifying to see that the Rosary has been very well attended by our Children, with parents and adults also coming along as well.

All Children were given a set of Rosary Beads when they first attended but it has been lovely to see a number now bringing their own personal beads along to the Group. In addition to praying the Rosary, the Children participated in a number of additional ways. For example, placing a rose in a vase for Our Lady; writing their own petition to Our Lady which were then placed onto the altar; reading the introduction to the Mysteries and; taking home a book of pictures of the Mysteries, and returning them coloured in. These will now be laminated and used in future Rosary Groups.

We hope to make this a regular event in the Children's Liturgy calendar, with the next Children of Mary Group planned for the month of May. Submitted by Gabriella Gibney.
