2015 Highlights

Over the past several days we have been featuring events that happened this year that had yet to be shared with you all.  One of those beautiful events was an Anniversary Celebration of the passing of Servant of God, Fr. Patrick Peyton.  

Fr. Patrick Peyton is known for his saying, "the family that prayers together stays together".  On June 6th 2015 a celebration was organized by Holy Cross Family Ministries.  The Children's Rosary was invited to participate.  Members from at least two of our Children's Rosary groups: the Children's Rosary from Sacred Heart Church in Middleboro, Massachusetts and the Children's Rosary from Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Sharon, Massachusetts attended.

One of our little members, Jack, was asked to help pass out Rosaries at the event.  He took great joy in this task.  Holy Cross Family Ministries shared this beautiful picture of Jack and his mother pictured above as well as the photo of the procession and Rosary.

The day involved a Rosary, Eucharistic procession, and a Mass celebrated by the Most Reverend Edgar M. da Cunha S.D.V., Bishop of Fall River Massachusetts. The children who attended had a wonderful and blessed filled day.  Many had an opportunity to participate in the procession and help lead the Rosary. As children from two Children's Rosary groups attended it was also an opportunity to spend time together.  Stickers with the Children's Rosary logo were worn by each member of the Children's Rosary so the children could easily identify who was part of the Children's Rosary and make new friends.  
A special thank you to all who traveled to attend this event and the members of the Holy Cross Family Ministries for inviting the Children's Rosary.
