After some delay in the judging, the winners of the 2012 Arizona Rosary Celebration poster contest have been announced. Most of the 24 winners of the K-8th contest were able to join Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted for Mass at the Diocesan Pastoral Center Feb. 14 followed by a pizza lunch.

The assignment was to depict your favorite mystery of the rosary. The Annunciation seemed to be a popular one among the winners. Seven parishes and Catholic schools had multiple winners. They are:

  • St. Thomas the Apostle — Frances Horn (K), Caroline Brewer (4th) and Lucilia Sanchez-Sandoval (7th)
  • Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Tempe — Samantha Tang (5th) and Alexandra Ortiz (7th)
