London, Ontario, Canada


 The Rosary Apostolate in schools was founded by Sister Marilina Cinelli in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and has spread throughout Ontario.  In London and Middlesex Country the program has now progressed to become localized under the name The Living Rosary in the Schools.  Locally we work with the London and District Catholic School Board Religion Department with the approval of the Bishop's Office to teach the Rosary in the schools.  The program consists of volunteers who go into Catholic schools to teach and pray the rosary with students in their classroom with their teacher present once per month from October to May.  Each student is provided with a Rosary and is encouraged to participate actively during the praying of the Rosary.  Posters are used to help contemplate the Mysteries.  Every month a different theme is presented to students to help the Rosary become a meaningful part of their lives.

After praying the Rosary together we consecrate ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Students are encouraged to speak to their loved ones about the Rosary.

Sessions vary in length from 15 Minutes in Junior and Senior Kindergarten,  20 minutes in grades 1-3 for one decade to 40 minutes in grades 4-8 for the full 5 decades.

Typically there are 5 steps to a visit.

1. Opening prayer

2. A brief theme ( 5 minutes)

3. Praying of the Rosary ( 1 decade in Grade 1-3, 5 in grades 4-8 with Meditations)

4. Closing Prayer

5. Singing of a short Hymn

We are always looking for more volunteers and encourage schools to bring the Rosary to their students.  If you would like to volunteer and/or bring the Rosary into your school please contact Rosemarie and Terry Lyng  in London, Ontario, Canada.
