On Oct. 31, 2017, Saint Francis Catholic School students, faculty and staff, along with several parents and guardians, gathered to recite a schoolwide holy rosary to our Blessed Mother. As one SFCS family, we gathered in our newly renovated multipurpose building, to pray the rosary to our Mother Mary, as she asked us all those years ago at Fatima, Portugal.

After praying for the intentions of the Holy Father students began their procession from the multipurpose building to the grotto in front of St. Francis Catholic School, as they chanted the litany of Loreto, led by our theology and math teacher, Mr. Joseph Capulong.

The procession ended at the front of the school where they offered flowers as a token of veneration to Our Lady. The prayer concluded with the chanting of the “Salve Regina,” ending with a closing prayer and a blessing by Fr. Andre Eduvala, pastor of St. Francis Catholic Church in Yoña.

This prayer marked the end of our celebration for the month of the holy rosary which is observed every October.

We thank the parents and guardians who joined us for our schoolwide rosary. Si’ Yu’os Ma’ase for all your support to St. Francis Catholic School.
