Children's Rosary Featured on EWTN's "Vatican Insider"


During our visit to Rome this summer, we had the special grace to meet with Joan Lewis, the host of EWTN's Vatican Insider radio show. Joan has been a Vatican reporter for over 40 years. We first met for lunch, and she shared wonderful stories of her time in Rome and special friendship with Pope John Paul II, which included making him homemade cookies. She invited us to her home to record a two part radio show about the Children's Rosary. See the picture above taken in her library. Both episodes of the Vatican Insider featuring the Children's Rosary can be heard below:

She also featured the Children's Rosary on her Vatican Insider Blog.

Members of the Children's Rosary Participate in Rosary Rally at Knock Shrine in Ireland


On June 4, the Children’s Rosary was blessed to be involved with the All-Ireland Rosary Rally in Knock Eucharistic and Marian Shrine, Co. Mayo, Ireland. 


The Children’s Rosary was represented on the day by a team of about twenty people; children, teens, and adults, all in Children’s Rosary T-shirts. 


Seven children, two boys and five girls, were invited to bring up gifts for the Offertory procession. The Papal Nuncio of Ireland, Archbishop Jude Okolo, celebrated the Mass. 



An estimated seven thousand people attended the rally.  The Children's Rosary team distributed over eighteen hundred Children’s Rosary pens to the congregation after Mass. They were well received, with some people taking extra for children in their schools.


A large Children's Rosary popup stand was present at the main entrance, which provided information about the Children’s Rosary.


The Rosary rally commenced with a Rosary talk by Fr. Marius O’Reilly. He also mentioned the Children's Rosary, how it started, how it’s growing, and it’s presence in Ireland during his talk.


We are grateful to Catherine McGowan and her team of Children's Rosary volunteers as well as Jim Clair of Benedictus Book Shop in Cork for their efforts to promote the Children's Rosary. 


Praise God! We continue to see great growth in the Children's Rosary in Ireland!
