During a week when so many, including Pope Francis, called for prayers for peace for Syria and throughout the world, Baltimore Archbishop William E. Lori blessed and dedicated Archbishop Spalding High School’s new rosary garden Sept. 3.
Archbishop Lori celebrated a liturgy and blessed the Severn school’s new rosary garden, an outdoor space that features a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary surrounded by the mysteries of the rosary, according to the school.
Other features include a statue of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and a memorial garden, which includes a representation of the Pieta. The art is meant to remember students and staff who died while at Archbishop Spalding.
The garden also includes an outdoor chapel where the school’s chaplain, Father Thomas Ryan, can celebrate Mass with the Spalding community, according to the school. The garden serves as a dedicated space for prayer and spiritual reflection.
