Diocesan Missionary Childhood Association (MCA) children offered prayers for the missions with the World Mission Rosary during Mission month in October.
Among those who prayed the World Mission Rosary were students from St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Bonneauville; Holy Angels Parish in Kulpmont; Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Lancaster and St. Anne School in Lancaster.

The students of Holy Angels Parish Religious Education Program in Kulpmont, along with many parents, parishioners, and guests prayed the Living Mission Rosary on Oct. 17 for special intentions of all the children around the world. Each child received a special Mission Rosary from the Missionary Childhood Association as sponsored by the Diocese of Harrisburg.
Since the beginning of the school year, the Missions Office has sent out more than 4,600 rosaries to schools and religious education programs.
