Meet the Children's Rosary at St. Peter Lemongo Church in Kenya

We are excited to share some beautiful pictures from our Children's Rosary group at St. Peter Lemongo Catholic Church in Kenya. This group meets weekly on Sundays at 11:30 AM Local time to hold their Children's Rosary meeting. On December 2, 2016 they had a special launch of their Children's Rosary group. 
The Pastor was able to attend and celebrate Mass which is a very special event.  With so many outposts of the Parish each village may only have Mass celebrated in their village once a year.

As part of the celebration of the Launch of the Children's Rosary each child was given their own Rosary. The children come from the surrounding areas to meet in their Children's Rosary meetings. We have entered these meetings on our Children's Rosary website. Please visit the site and see when the next groups will be meeting. Each group is asked to pray for those unifying prayers with them. Thus by joining in prayer with the children, they are praying for you! The meetings are listed in on our site in your local time zone. When a Children's Rosary group is meeting a blue light will flash on our new View from Heaven map.  You can click "join in prayer" and you can become a gold light on the map.  

We would like to ask for prayers for these groups in Kenya. They are suffering from a severe drought. The children must often walk great distances to find water for themselves their families and the animals.

The children also asked for a Statue of Our Lady to pray before in their meetings. We are working hard to fulfill their wish. Donations to the Children's Rosary are always appreciated and can be made on our site HERE. We thank all those who have assisted the Children's Rosary through donations which help us continue to send packages to the many groups around the world. thank you also for the many handmade Rosaries which are donated to the Children's Rosary.  The Rosaries given to the children at St. Peter Lemongo were ones we were able to send through the generosity of so many.  Thank you all! 

We are very encouraged by what Br. Cleophus is sharing about the Children's Rosary groups.  Br. Cleophus is pictured in white in the top picture. He shares, "The Children's Rosary has brought an impact here."  He explains, "Christians are very happy because they have seen a great change in children and increase of new members to the Church."  
Br. Cleophus also described how a spirit of peace has been brought to many tense relationships in the area

We are very grateful to Br. Cleophus and the Pastor for walking 2 and a half hours each way to reach this village for the special celebratory launch of the Children's Rosary.  This was a great blessing for the children and their families to be able to attend Holy Mass. The children who had been meeting in their group for some time were very excited to have a celebration of the beginning of their prayer group.
