Scouts install Rosary Box

What do you call someone who meanders the Queen of the Rosary Motherhouse grounds praying the Rosary? A “Roaming” Catholic! (Ha, ha, ha!)

You may have noticed a special wooden box near the statue of St. Dominic de Guzman. It is a Rosary Lending Box — installed by Scout Zachary Krenn of Troop 96 as part of his Eagle Scout project.

On an October weekend, in the month of the Rosary, Zachary arrived with a contingent of other scouts to install the box. They filled it with beautiful Rosary beads as well as pamphlets about this Marian Devotion. The scouts also constructed wooden arrow signs which were placed around the property to help guide visitors on the historic “Dominican Pause Walking Tour”, a one-mile loop that allows visitors to explore our grounds while learning about our history and mission.

The scouts also painted white dog prints on the sidewalk and pavement, so participants would know where to “paws” or pause. The dog prints call to mind Blessed Juana of Aza when she was pregnant with Dominic – and her vision of a dog holding a torch bringing the light of Christ to the world.
