In celebration of May, the month of Mary, Good Shepherd Church in Alexandria set up a rosary walk in a field on the church grounds.

The walk features 20 photos mounted on A-frame stands showing stained-glass windows from churches around the world depicting the joyful, sorrowful, glorious and luminous mysteries of the rosary, as well as an introductory card. The photos are by Dominican Father Lawrence Lew of England. 

“The rosary walk gives our parishioners, even those who are not yet comfortable coming back to Mass in person, a beautiful space to meditate on and pray the rosary,” said Veronica McGraw, digital media specialist at Good Shepherd.

She added that the cards are also an evangelization and can be seen by anyone who drives by or walks past the church on the nearby trails. 

McGraw said the parish’s Spanish-speaking Legion of Mary group has been praying along the rosary walk on Saturday mornings and Father Jeb Donelan, parochial vicar, has been leading the rosary in the field after some of the Spanish-language Masses.
