Bury the dead. That is a tough Corporal Work of Mercy for a sixth grader at Holy Rosary to perform. Yet our wonderful sixth grade class certainly honored the dead without actually attending a funeral. On Friday the second of November the entire sixth grade class at Holy Rosary went to Rose Hill Cemetery to rake and bag leaves. With thoughtful and loving hands they gently brushed off headstones, knelt in prayer, and noted the fragility of life. I was so proud to announce to three different people walking through the cemetery that these were Holy Rosary students when they stopped to tell me how impressed they were to see such community service. Through out the rest of the month of November the sixth graders lead the whole school each morning in the "Eternal Rest" prayer.
