Church club celebrates 150th anniversary

The Rosary Society at St. Mary Catholic Church in Algoma has blown past Moses, but it might be a while before they catch Methuselah. The organization celebrated its 150th anniversary on February 23rd, which included a visit from Bishop David Ricken. President Judy Ortleib says the Bishop usually makes an appearance for the sacrament of confirmation every two years, so it was gratifying for him to be on hand. Ortlieb says being a member of the Rosary Society deepens a person’s Catholic faith and creates unbreakable bonds with other parishioners. 


The Rosary Society and the Knights of Columbus are the most active organizations within the St. Mary community.
