Feast of St. Thomas Becket

As today is the Feast of St. Thomas Becket, Bishop and Martyr, I thought it timely to highlight the Children's Rosary at St. Thomas Becket Church in Cheshire, Connecticut USA.  In these last days of 2015, we have been sharing events that happened during the year that seemed to slip by without spotlighting them here.  

One such event was the visit of UN Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima to St. Thomas Becket Parish on October 15th 2015.  The Children's Rosary group leaders for this parish helped organize the visit and held a Children's Rosary before Our Lady of Fatima and the Blessed Sacrament. Custodian of the statue, Judy Studer, shared with the children the story of Our Lady of Fatima.  She also spoke of the three children of Fatima and their beautiful devotion to the Rosary.  First class relics of both Bl. Jacinta and Bl. Francisco were present for veneration. Each child reverently came forward for veneration of the relics.  

Toward the end of the evening one child went before Our Blessed Mother for some last prayers before leaving.  It was very sweet to see her saying her last prayers before saying good bye.

A special thank you to the Children's Rosary group leaders from St. Thomas Becket for helping to organize this event, as well as Judy Studer, Joan Alix and all those who helped to make this a special time of prayer for the children.
