Children's Rosary Turns Ten!

The Children's Rosary turned ten on April 10th 2021. At the home parish of the Children's Rosary, St. Thomas the Apostle, we had our monthly Children's Rosary on Sunday. 

We celebrated the Anniversary first by making special cupcakes decorated each with the number ten. These were given in little containers to the children and adults who attended the Children's Rosary.  
We had a lovely Rosary led by the children. Children in turns helped to lead the prayers and they also helped in placing roses at the foot of Our Lady. Sean attended the Rosary. Many may remember Sean. He was in our theme song video. Kostin was leading him out of the Church as he is blind. It was very touching to see Kostin now significantly taller still helping Sean by taking a rose from him to place at Our Lady's feet at the end of the second decade. 

Asher who was only 4 years old when the Children's Rosary began, had prepared something special for the day. He had learned to play our theme song "Rosary Children" on the guitar. Being rather self conscious as most 14 year olds are at that age, he waited to play the song for Our Lady after almost everyone had left the Church. It was a private gift from a child to his Heavenly Mother. 
Our Anniversary novena of Masses continue. For nine days leading up to the anniversary Masses were said for the fulfillment of Our Lady's plans for the Children's Rosary. Thirty Masses were said in total for that intention. Starting on April 10th daily Masses were celebrated in thanksgiving. These will continue until April 18th. We anticipate 36 Masses to be celebrated in total in thanksgiving. 

We thank God for the many blessings He has bestowed on the Children's Rosary. We also thank all of you who have helped in so many ways over these last ten years. May God bless you all.
