This Advent Place a Patiently Waiting Sign
in Your Window
Join the Children's Rosary by putting a sign in your window as a beautiful reminder of where our hearts can be found as we prepare ourselves for the coming of Christ. On Christmas replace the sign with one that reads: Christ is Born.
Fifth Anniversary of the Patiently Waiting Campaign
If you have a Children's Rosary in your school we invite you to have the children make signs in class and have them bring them home to put in their windows. The picture above was sent to us from a school in New Jersey.
We have included a flyer for this year. Consider posting this at your parish or school. The flyer can be saved to your computer by right clicking on the image below and clicking save. This can then be printed. Alternatively, if you would like us to email you the pdf please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
We invite people to send us a picture of their Patiently Waiting sign in their window. Please include in the email where you live. We hope to feature some of these on our website. Pictures can be sent to: email@example.com
Invitation to Everyone
We should note that the Patiently Waiting Campaign is an invitation to adults and children. One does not have to be involved with the Children's Rosary to participate.
The story behind the Patiently Waiting Campaign:
A number of years ago, I was walking past a home and in the window a sign read: Patiently Waiting. It caught my attention. Each time I walked past it each day I looked at it and was grateful for it. To see the sign made me happy inside. I wondered who put such a sign in their window. Later I would find out it was a wonderfully holy priest. After his passing, many shared how special this little sign was to them. It was so simple but it sent a ripple out into the community, a joyful one that is still moving in my heart years later even after the soul who placed it in his window has passed on. This made me wonder, what if each of us put a sign in our windows? What would be the effect...these speckles of love sprinkled all over the world. It was from this thought that the Patiently Waiting Campaign was born.
