Join Us for the 23rd International Week of Prayer and Fasting

Children's Rosary held at the 21st International Week and of Prayer
and Fasting Vigil at the National Shrine  of the Immaculate Conception in DC 2013
Consider joining us in this years 23rd International Week of Prayer and Fasting.  This week of prayer and fasting for Peace, the Protection of life and the conversion of Nations has received support and blessings from such individuals as St. John Paul II, Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Pope Francis.  

The Children's Rosary has participated for the past two years.  Beginning in 2013 with a group of children traveling by bus to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC to lead a Children's Rosary at the kick off vigil.  We have continued our involvement by participating each year in the prayers and fasting.  

Today begins the week of prayer and fasting which will extend from October 16th -24th. We hope many of the members of the Children's Rosary will consider being a part of this.  

We would like tto humbly ask you to include two additonal intentions for your week of prayer and fasting:

May Our Lady's plan for you, your family, the Children's Rosary and how the Children's Rosary affects the world be realized.
May the Children's Rosary, their families, those assoicated with the Children's Rosary including our priests and Bishops and Our Holy Father the Pope be the extended hands of Our Blessed Mother and Her Son.  May we gather a great many souls expecially young people for the Lord.

While many will be fasting on bread and water individuals especially children may consider smaller renunciations that are age appropriate such as sweets or other little sacrifices.
