On Tuesday October 17th, 2017 at St. Mary Magdalen, all students participated in a breast cancer awareness ceremony. Every student had the chance to buy a t-shirt to wear on Pink Out Tuesday and all the profits went to St. Mary’s Hospital’s Breast Screening Fund. Ann Smith and Robyn Sills came to receive the money on behalf of St. Mary’s Hospital. As the school prepped for the event, each student got a blank ribbon and he or she colored it and brought it to the ceremony. At the event, all the students will made a living rosary with 10 students from grades three through eight around the outside forming the beads.  These students said the Hail Mary.  Other students from grades kindergarten to eight  grade formed the cross in the center. Students from Sacred Heart High School and Holy Cross High School were also part of the rosary. After the living rosary, teachers, friends and family of the community coma to talk about their experiences with cancer and how it has affected their life. Emma Smith from eighth grade said “ it was interesting and very respectful for us to do.”  Another student from eighth grade, Mandy Burne, said “ it was inspiring to see people be so strong about such a disease.” Overall, it was a beautiful ceremony to have for such a great cause.
