St. Jean Vianney Catholic School students released a rosary made of balloons Oct. 16, as part of the Living Rosary celebration at the school, said teacher Katie Jeter. It included a note explaining the significance of the rosary.

Later that day, the rosary landed on the tennis courts of Hahnville High School, about 80 miles away in Boutte. They were spotted by members of the ROTC as they were finishing practice.
