U.S. College Students Celebrate Our Lady of the Rosary in Rome

A joyful group of American college students studying in Rome from three Catholic colleges including Thomas More College in New Hampshire, Ave Maria University in Florida and Aquinas College in Michigan made a pilgrimage to four ancient basilicas, singing the Rosary in Latin for the feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary as they went, according to the National Catholic Register.

“We’re doing this to celebrate the feast day today and as a pilgrimage,” said 19-year-old Jonathan Wanner from Mandan, N.D. He was leading the procession with a five-foot cross made of palm leaves.
