Children's Rosary to Join the International Prayer and Fasting Campaign

The Children's Rosary has been invited to lead a Rosary and participate in the procession of nations at the Eucharistic Prayer Vigil at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC September 21st 2013.  This represents the kick off event for the 21st International Prayer and Fasting Campaign.  The Prayer Vigil will begin at the Basilica at 9AM with Adoration all day and Holy Mass at noon.  There will also be confessions available. 

Pope John Paul II strongly supported this prayer and fasting initiative conveying an Apostolic Blessing going forward to all who participate in the annual week of prayer and fasting.

Any children who would like to help in leading a Rosary at the Basilica are invited to join us.  Please contact Blythe Kaufman for more information:

We hope many of you will consider offering prayers and fasting from Sept 21st through Sept 29th for the three main intentions of the week:

Conversion of Nations
To Build a "Culture of Life"
For Peace throughout the World.

"As a pledge of an abundance of Divine Blessings upon You and Yours, I paternally impart to all participants of the International Week of Prayer and Fasting My Most Heartfelt Apostolic Blessing!"-Pope John Paul II, October 1, 2001
