Rosarian Hosts Lord’s Place Pumpkin Carving

Lots of guts and glory as eighth grader Lily Guari pulls off the top of the pumpkin she carved with a girl who resides at the Lord’s Place Family Campus.

For the seventh consecutive year, Rosarian Academy students were blessed to spend a few hours Wednesday, Oct. 24 carving pumpkins and making new friends with the children who reside at the Lord’s Place Family Campus.

The school’s National Junior Honor Society students organized the Halloween activities, including guts (that’s pumpkin guts) and lots of glory.

The Rosarian students paired up with Lord’s Place children to carve and paint pumpkins, share stories and have fun together.

Through a school-wide effort, more than 60 pumpkins were collected. The Lord’s Place housing programs provide shelter for homeless men, women and children, and help residents identify the issues that led to their homelessness.
