The Daughters of Mary worshp the Virgin. They seem to mix pegan and Catholic rituals. On Sundays, the Daughters of Mary group meets for prayer services in the Boatwright house. The Daughters of Mary are mostly women: the Boatwright sisters, Queenie, Violet, Lunelle, Mabelee, Cressie, and Sugar Girl. The group also includes one man, Otis Hill. At these events, June plays the cello and the group recites Hail Marys.
