  • Date: October 12, 2021 – Tuesday
  • Time: 9:00 a.m.
  • Place: BCHS Main Gym

The Living Rosary is the longest-standing tradition at Bishop Chatard. This will be the 57th Living Rosary in the school’s history. The seniors ‘become’ the rosary as the community together prays the mysteries. The ceremony honors our patroness, Mary, Queen of Heaven and announces the formal beginning of the senior year in prayer to Mary.


COVID Precautions: Juniors, Seniors and Senior parents/guardians will be present in the main gym. Masks are suggested but not required for those in attendance. Other classes will participate via livestreaming, if possible.

Class of 2022 Parents/Guardians: The Living Rosary will begin at 9 a.m. and last approximately 45 minutes. Please plan to arrive between 8:15 and 8:45 a.m. Feel free to bring your own rosary or we will have some to distribute as well.

Seniors: Seniors need to arrive at school no later than 7:45 a.m. and report directly to the auxiliary gym. Seniors will be released for the day following the service. Please read and follow the Dress Code below for the celebration.

Parking: Parking will be available in the Bishop Chatard parking lot and along the east side of Crittenden Avenue. The city prohibits parking on the west side of Crittenden Ave.

Senior Dress Code


Solid white shirt, tie, dark sport coat or suit jacket, dark dress pants with a belt, dark colored socks, and dress shoes. We ask that our young men be well-groomed and clean-shaven.


A dark solid dress (may have some white accent, but no print) with sleeves or wide straps (no strapless, spaghetti straps, plunging necklines or backless dresses unless a dark sweater is worn as well). Dresses should not have large slits or uneven hemlines, and should not be too tight or form fitting. The hem of the dress must extend to the top of the kneecap. A dark sweater or wrap can be worn. OR: A white loose-fitting opaque (not transparent) or a dark top/blouse with dark slacks (no capri or tight-fitting pants) or dark solid skirt (again, not too tight or form-fitting, with a hem that extends to the top of the kneecap).

Please do not wear large dangling earrings. Dress shoes are required. Shoes should be dark or neutral flats or low-heeled (this is a safety issue). Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but no flip-flops, please.
