New Children's Rosary in Newtown, Connecticut

Today we received this picture of our new Children's Rosary group at St. Rose of Lima Parish in Newtown, Connecticut USA.  They held their first meeting on March 24th which was Holy Thursday.  The children came together in prayer at 4:30PM. 

One of  the group leaders shared, "we had 12 children and 5 adults (12 apostles/5 wounds of Christ). We thought this was just amazing!"

Receiving word that a new group held their first meeting on Holy Thursday was wonderful news!  Indeed to give Our Lord a new group as He was going into his Passion is particularly special.  

St. Rose of Lima Parish has also known considerable suffering.  On December 14, 2012 twenty children between the ages of 6 and 7 were fatally shot at their elementary school in Newtown, CT.  Many of the funerals were held at St. Rose of Lima Parish.  It seemed no one was spared from heartache especially not the children.  

To see these little ones now with smiles on their faces coming together in prayer at St Rose of Lima Church is such a welcome sight.  There is such hope present in our children especially when we see them close to Our Blessed Mother and her Son in prayer.
