No Guts, No Glory: Rosarian Hosts the 7th Annual Pumpkin Carving Event at The Lord’s Place
For the 7th consecutive year, Rosarian Academy students were blessed to spend a few hours carving pumpkins and making new friends with the children who reside at The Lord’s Place Family Campus on Wednesday, October 24. 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 children who are currently housed by The Lord’s Place to carve and paint pumpkins, share stories, and have fun together.
Through a school-wide effort, over 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.

Currently, 36 families with 60 children reside at the Family Campus. For more information, visit www.thelordsplace.org.
