The Children's Rosary group leader explained that on the way to the Shrine it was pouring rain and there was concern for the weather. Even as preparations began it was raining heavily but the sky beautifully cleared just in time for the procession, crowning and Children's Rosary.It is inspiring to see the mentorship that happens between the children. In the above picture a six year old boy, shown with the multicolor shirt, was being helped by one of the other members of the Children's Rosary.

On April 23, 2022 6 barrels were sent to Uganda. The total number of rosaries included in the 6 barrels came to 51,621 rosaries. Almost all of these rosaries were handmade. In total 300 Children's Rosary books were sent along with 150 Child Consecration books. We are grateful to those who support our mission through financial donations and the hundreds who make handmade rosaries and send them to us from the US and Canada. We try to send only handmade rosaries as we know these are a double gift of both a rosary and a tremendous amount of love.
We are still in need for several more sponsors to cover all the shipping costs associated with the barrels. With prices rising, each barrel now costs approximately 500 dollars to send.
Donations can be made electronically HERE.

We pair this newsletter with some recent pictures of Lilies of Valley blooming in our yard. Their tiny flowers smell heavenly but these bloom for such a short time...usually just a week. We have been trying to enjoy their fragrance as it comes just one time per year. Seeing the passage of the flowers does give one pause to appreciate how fast time is going by especially when we see our young ones growing up. Let us make good use of our time.

On May 1st 2017 the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker and the first day of Our Lady's month of May, the Children's Rosary received a gift. EWTN featured the Children's Rosary on two shows. Nuestra Fe en Vivo aired a program on the Children's Rosary in Spanish. Host Pepe Alonso interviewed, Asher Kaufman age 10, a member of the Children's Rosary. If you have not had a chance to see this interview it is very special. The link is HERE.
At Home with Jim and Joy also featured a program that highlighted the Children's Rosary.
Many beautiful fruits came through those airings and we would like to thank God, Our Lady and the people at EWTN for their kindness to help spread the Children's Rosary. For those who may not have seen the programs links to both are provided below:
