First Meeting of the Children's Rosary in Shelbyville Illinois

There is a new Children's Rosary group at Immaculate Conception Church in Shelbyville IL USA.  They met for the first time on January 28thth 2015. This group has chosen to meet the last Wednesday of the month at 4:30 PM CT.  The group meets before the weekly catechism classes for the parish.  At their first meeting their Pastor Fr. Don Wolford attended and Consecrated the new group to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.  

We ask that each new Children's Rosary group be Consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary in that way each group is under the protection and guidance of Christ and His Mother. Usually the group leader Consecrates the new group but when a priest is able to attend this is an extra special blessing.  

The group leader shared that initially there were 7 children to begin the Children's Rosary put as they prayed more and more children folded in and joined the prayers.  By the end there were 22 children praying.  For there first time the children gathered at the table but this month the children will be encouraged to bring pillows which they will use as kneelers.  They plan to have the children gather in a semi-circle kneeling around a statue of Our Blessed Mother as they pray.

This new group will have their second meeting this evening.  Please consider joining them in prayer from your home.  The children pray for all those unifying prayers with them.
