  • Time: 8:30 a.m.

The Living Rosary is the longest-standing tradition at Bishop Chatard. This will be the 58th 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.

Seniors are not required to participate; however, all seniors, including those who are not Catholic, are encouraged to join in this celebration
