Hurschel Burleigh started giving the rosary to nursing home residents at Luling Living Center in 1986 with his late wife Ruby.

That tradition is still carried on today.

“The residents appreciate that someone cares enough about them to take the time out of their busy schedule to do this for them,” Burleigh said.

The rosary is given by Knights of Columbus members of St. Charles Council 2409 of Luling and their spouses every Monday evening.
