The COVID-19 pandemic didn’t stop a group of Brooklyn Catholic students from showing their gratitude.

Mary’s Helpers, a rosary service group from Good Shepherd Catholic Academy in Marine Park, Brooklyn, were forced to quarantine due to the coronavirus.

Mary’s Helpers wasn’t able to meet or do service.

The group’s moderator, third grade teacher Mary DeNonno, says she felt a ‘calling’ to show some appreciation for the city’s front-line workers.

She gathered the group together on zoom to discuss the idea, and here you have it – a ringing tribute for all of New York’s finest medical workers and first responders – complete with posters, banging pots and songs.

Even more impressive – rising seventh grader Grace Ferretti edited this entire video together by herself on an iPhone.
