Children's Rosary to Lead Stations of the Cross

The Children's Rosary at St. Thomas Apostle Church will be leading the Stations of the Cross on Friday March first.  

Stations of the Cross are held each Friday in Lent at St. Thomas Apostle Church.  Each Friday is typically led by a different ministry from the Parish.  Members of the ministry take turns leading readings at each station and carrying candles and a cross.  Last year several members of the Children's Rosary assisted by carrying candles and holding the cross while other ministries lead the readings.  The children were so excited to help and showed remarkable reverence. 

This year we asked if the Children's Rosary might be able to lead one Friday on their own.  We were given permission and chose March 1st which is also First Friday.  A short time later we heard that our Parish would be hosting one town wide Stations of the Cross and the Friday assigned to our Parish was March first.  We are very grateful for such a blessing to be granted to the Children's Rosary.

Our Blessed Mother is always pointing us toward her Son so it seems fitting that after close to two years of holding our monthly Children's Rosary the children should be brought to the foot of the Cross by Our Lady.
