Participants included Marlene Glover, president of the South Carolina Conference of Catholic Women; Juanita Henry, president of SCCCW’s Columbia deanery; Mar­ion Alexander, rosary altar society president; Deacons Leland Cave and Carl Johnson from St. Martin de Porres; Sister Roberta Fulton, SSMN, principal of St. Martin de Porres School; Yvonne Pygatt and Bernetha Henry, event co-chairs.
