One year ago a small group of children and their parents met for the first children's rosary in the lower chapel of St. Thomas Apostle Church in West Hartford, CT USA. We came before the Lord and consecrated ourselves and our children to Our Lady and Jesus. We came with Love for Mary and a desire to have her guide us to her Son. As the most perfect of mothers she heard us and has been leading us by the hand this past year.

The children made an intention box which is kept in our Parish and all are encouraged to place an intention into the box to be prayed for during our daily rosaries as well as well as during our monthly group rosary.
A Mass is being said today, April 10th 2012, for all of the families of the children's rosary. To be a member of the children's rosary one only has to tell the Lord in their heart of their desire to join our group.
The children are dedicating the upcoming year to renewal of family prayer and will be giving out children's Bibles and handmade bookmarks at their anniversary rosary this Sunday at 9:45AM EST in the chapel of St. Thomas the Apostle Church West Hartford CT, USA. If you cannot attend the rosary join us in prayer from your homes. If you would like one of our handmade bookmarks please contact us at email@example.com
