St. Andrew Rosary Garden in Tipton

“A hundred little voices. One and two at a time.”

That’s how Virginia Johnson Shetler described the dedication of the Rosary Garden outside St. Andrew Church in Tipton.

Older and younger students of St. Andrew School stood two-by-two at each “bead” in the newly completed garden.

Each helped lead one of the prayers as the entire school asked Mary to intercede for them before the throne of Christ in heaven.

Father Anthony Rinaldo, pastor of St. Andrew parish and of Annunciation parish in California, blessed and dedicated the Rosary Garden in the presence of all the students and faculty.

“May God grant to us, His faithful people, that by praying the Rosary we may, with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, seek to keep His joys, sorrows and glories in our minds and hearts,” Fr. Rinaldo prayed.
