A Peaceful Space for Prayer and Meditation
Nick Vojnovic, QA Class of 2019, has completed his Eagle Scout Project of renovating the Rosary Walk in Gabriel’s Garden at Queen of Angels Catholic School. During the weekend of August 13th and 14th, Nick led a group of 18 volunteers who worked to clean up and remove worn-out aspects of the existing path. They installed new landscape timbers to line the path, reset all the stepping stones, and filled in the path with river pebbles. Nick added a landscaped area with a sign explaining how to use the path, bushes, and mulch. Nick spent a total of 73 hours of preparation and planning to bring this beautiful walk to completion for Queen of Angels.
The Rosary Walk was originally created as an Eagle Scout project in 2014 by QA alum Alex Vojnovic, Nick’s older brother. Nick helped on that project 8 years ago when he was 10.
The Queen of Angels Rosary Walk is a teaching tool to help learn the rosary. Students can learn the rosary by walking and praying on this path created by different size stepping stones representing the beads, mysteries, and other parts of the Rosary. The small stepping stones themselves serve as the "beads" for the praying of the Rosary, and the Mysteries are identified through the larger stones to help relate the path to an actual rosary. A sign will be installed to assist students in understanding how to use the Rosary Walk.
