Stations of Prayer

It’s Wednesday again! We had our weekly Queen of Angels Children Group here @ St. Pat’s. One of our challenges is to keep around 20 children focus during the Rosary. Today, I implemented a simple method: to pray each decade at a different location.

1st Decade @ St. Joseph’s Chapel (kneeling):

2nd Decade @ Sacred Heart’s Chapel (standing):

3rd Decade @ the entrance of the church beneath the Passion Scene (standing):

4th Decade @ St. Lorenzo’s Chapel (standing):

5th Decade @ the main church (kneeling):

At the end, we stood facing the status of Our Lady and prayed the “Hail Holy Queen”.

Then the children sat down to listen to my brief catechetical talk, and they lined up for individual blessing with sacred relics.

After the Rosary is activity time. The children played sports and ate ice-cream. Then they had Water Fight !!!
