The St. Mary Church grotto in Sharpsburg reopened recently to a group that prays there regularly. The property was sold about two years ago and wasn't available to the group in 2012, but the rosary group received permission from the new owner to use the site again. Donated statues and other items were used to fill the grotto. The site is considered a community landmark, and groups have been praying there for at least 50 years.
