The St. Mary Catholic School Prayer Group recently received a letter of thank you from Pope Benedict XVI. In April, the group made a card and sent it to the pope for his fifth anniversary and birthday week. In his response, Pope Benedict said he would "pray for the students and their teachers," and he sent them his blessings. The prayer group, which has 55 members, has been meeting at St. Mary once a week for 10 years. Children read the Bible, participate in Marian processions, learn about the lives of the saints and pray the rosary.

It was a simple plea, repeated in familiar, traditional words: "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. " But Saturday, a group of more than 30 local Catholics took their prayers out of church and into the public spotlight during a Rosary Rally in Hagerstown's Public Square. The rally was one of more than 7,500 such rallies scheduled to take place across the country Saturday as part of the Public Square Rosary Crusade, a movement by the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property, according to the campaign website, www.americaneedsfatima.org . At the Hagerstown rally, participants gathered at noon at the corner of Washington and Potomac streets behind a "Praying the Rosary for America" banner.
