Community members meet at the Mother of God grotto to pray the rosary in Jasper on Tuesday. Their intention for this session was to pray for all students, teachers, administrators and caregivers. Lynn Bohnert, who has been attending the prayers for over a month now, says she tries to pray the rosary every day. “The world needs more prayer,” she said.
