Pandemic does not stop 64-year tradition of praying the rosary at St. Jude Regional Catholic School

The weekly Rosary Club has been a spiritual offering at St. Jude Regional Catholic School in Rockville, Maryland, since the school opened its doors in 1956. The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent self-quarantine orders did not stop the weekly rosary, as the school continued to pray via the Internet.

Led by St. Jude’s upper school religion teacher Jeanne Donatelli, the Rosary Club meets via Zoom each Wednesday afternoon, with approximately 14 to 20 families participating each week. The participating students joined in praying the rosary together virtually through the spring and summer. Now as the new school year has begun at St. Jude Regional Catholic School with some students attending class in-person and others taking classes virtually, the Rosary Club continues to meet via Zoom on Wednesday afternoons so all the students and families can pray together.
