A Surprise on the Feast of St. Nicholas!

Today the Children's Rosary received a surprise gift.  We received an endorsement letter from Bishop Reynaldo Evangelista of the Diocese of Imus in the Philippines. 

We are very grateful for his support and blessing of the Children's Rosary.  Over the past year we have seen the Children's Rosary spreading in a beautiful way throughout the Philippines.  Groups now exist in Bohol, Cebu and Tacloban City.  There are efforts to begin new groups in the City of Imus, Cavite and Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

The text of the letter reads:
It is with joy that I officially endorse the Children's Rosary Prayer Group Movement to parishes and Catholic Christian communities in the Diocese of Imus. 

Established on April 10th, 2011 at West Hartford Connecticut USA, this Catholic lay movement is faithful to magisterial teachings and promotes the devotion and consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Keeping in mind the universal Christian calling to holiness, this movement assists parishes and communities by initiating rosary prayer groups for children ages 4 to 14 years old.

As this movement immerses in the spiritual enrichment of children and the youth in the Diocese of Imus without prejudice to diocesan formation programs, it will work in close collaboration with the vicars forane, parish priests and the Apostolado sa Larangan ng Pagkilala sa Diyos.

May Mary, our Blessed Mother, lead us to a life of holiness and service.

Given on the 26th of November 2015 at the Chancery Office, Imus City, Cavite.

Sincerely in Christ
Reynaldo G. Evangelista, DD
Bishop of Imus
