We received these beautiful pictures from the Children's Rosary in Castledawson, Co. Derry, Ireland. The pictures were taken at their December 10, 2023 Children's Rosary meeting. Advent is a very special time of grace. As we patiently wait for the coming of Christ we pray that Jesus will be born in our hearts.

Join Us for a Christmas Novena Starting December 16, 2023

                             Christmas Novena

Prayer to the Miraculous Infant of Prague

In anticipation of Christmas December 25th consider saying this 9 day Novena from December 16th-December 24th.  

O Divine Infant Jesus, Who said: "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you." Through the intercession of Mary, Your Most Holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer be granted.

(Make your request.)

O Divine Infant Jesus, Who said: "Unless you become like little children, you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven." Grant me the simplicity and wonder, the tenderness and gentleness of a child. Fill me with innocence, hope and love. Grant me the grace that I need.

(Make your request.)

O Divine Infant Jesus, help me know how close You are to me and how powerful is Your embrace. Help me to trust that You hold the whole world in Your hand. I place my every need and care in Your hands. I ask that you fulfill my request according to Your holy will.

(Make your request.)

Miraculous Infant of Prague, have mercy on us.
We humbly ask that you join us in praying this novena and include as one of your intentions: for all those who help the Children's Rosary through time, talent or treasure may they receive Christmas peace and joy. 
This is spiritual gift we would like to share with all those who have supported the Children's Rosary this year. In addition, a Mass will be celebrated for all the members of the Children's Rosary and all who help the Children's Rosary on December 25th.

Participate in the Day of the Little Candles December 7, 2023

The Day of the Little Candles or Día de las Velitas is a custom practiced all over Colombia in honor of the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. The way each state in Colombia celebrates the Day of the Little Candles varies according to the region. 

On the evening of December 7th, lanterns are put in front of homes and in the streets with candles inside. There are processions to honor the Immaculate Conception. They carry a statue of the Virgin Mary through the streets finishing at the Church where they end by saying the rosary. 

Beginning in 2012 we have celebrated the Day of the Little Candles. We invite members of the Children's Rosary to also put out candles or lanterns in honor of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Here is a LINK of how to make the lanterns in English. Here is the LINK in Spanish.

Hot Chocolate and Toasted Marshmallows

The Children's Rosary at St John's Parish in Barrhead, Scotland, had a candlelit outdoor Children's Rosary in November. It was cold, but the families warmed up after the rosary by a bonfire. The group leader shared that for their meeting on December 1 at 6:00 PM they will again meet outside. As a special treat, there will be hot chocolate and marshmallows to toast by the fire. Often Children's Rosary groups consider meeting outside only in the warm weather, but this outdoor candlelit rosary in the winter had an unique appeal.

November 27, 2023 is the Feast of the Miraculous Medal


A special thank you to all who have joined us on the journey of the 9 Day novena of the Miraculous Medal, which concluded yesterday, November 26. 

This summer Amelia Grace, age 9, a member of the Children's Rosary, went on pilgrimage from Portugal to France and visited the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. She writes, "Besides the Shrine in Fátima, Portugal, the Chapelle of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Paris is the best shrine I've visited in my life. I [attended] Mass and [prayed] two Rosaries."

Pictures from Amelia's pilgrimage are included above. She also sent us a summary of the important message which was given to St. Catherine Laboure.

"Have a medal struck after this model,” our Blessed Mother told Sister Catherine Laboure, who is now a Saint, on Nov. 27, 1830, when she appeared to her in the Daughters of Charity convent in Paris:

“All who wear it will receive great graces; they should wear it around the neck. Graces will abound for persons who wear it with confidence.”

During Amelia's trip, she got lots of Miraculous medals for her friends and delivered many Children's Rosary books to the Rector of the Shrine. We are grateful to Amelia for her help in spreading the Children's Rosary. She not only brought French Children's Rosary books with her on her pilgrimage and shared them, but she also has continued to share Children's Rosary materials along the Camino in Portugal. 

Thank you Amelia!!!

Join Us for the Novena of the Miraculous Medal 18-26 2023

O Immaculate Virgin Mary,

Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother,
penetrated with the most lively confidence in your
all-powerful and never-failing intercession,
manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal,
we your loving and trustful children implore you to obtain for us the graces and favors we ask during this novena,
if they be beneficial to our immortal souls,
and the souls for whom we pray.

(Here mention your petitions *)

You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been 
the sanctuaries of your Son who hates iniquity.
Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that
purity of heart which will attach us to God alone so 
that our every thought, word and deed may tend to 
His greater glory.
Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial
that we may recover by penance what we have lost
by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode 
where you are the Queen of angels and of men.

(source: EWTN)

The Children's Rosary would like to humbly invite you to join us in praying the Novena of the Miraculous Medal (November 18th -26th).  
* In a special way may we pray for the intentions of Our Blessed Mother and a fulfillment of Her plans for each of us and the Children's Rosary prayer group movement. We pray for Peace, Peace Peace!  May God help us to put more miraculous medals in the hands of children. Amen.

A kind family sent the Children's Rosary 2,000 miraculous medals to share with children during our month long trip to East Africa in the summer of 2019. The children were so grateful to receive a miraculous medal. Unfortunately, we ran out of medals and many many children did not receive one. We pray God may open hearts to help us send more miraculous medals to not only the children in Kenya but other Children's Rosary groups throughout the world. The family that sent the 2,000 miraculous medals ordered them from St. Paul St. Evangelization.
If there are any souls who feel moved to send us miraculous medals to share with children please send them to:
Children's Rosary
PO Box 271743
West Hartford, CT 06127 USA

May God Bless you!

Children's Rosary in Fulda, Germany, Met to Pray on the Feast of All Saints


The Children's Rosary at Our Lady of Fatima Chapel in Fulda, Germany, met this past Wednesday. It was the Feast of All Saints. Before the children as they prayed were prayer cards depicting saints. As this was also the eve of All Souls Day, the group leader included cards with names and pictures of loved ones who had passed. It was lovely that the children prayed for those who have died, which is a spiritual work of mercy. It is also wonderful that the children became more familiar with the communion of saints, who are wonderful role models as the children grow.

All Souls' Day 2023


We would like to humbly invite those involved with the Children's Rosary to pray a Rosary on November 2 for all the deceased members of the Children's Rosary and all those who are deceased who have helped or participated in the Children's Rosary in any way. Children and families can also take the opportunity to pray for those in their families who have passed.

We would also like to invite Children's Rosary groups to make it an annual tradition if possible to assemble a Balloon Rosary in honor of the day. Once completed, the balloons can be used to pray the Rosary. We suggest that the Balloon Rosary be tethered so it does not cause aviation interference. It also allows for those to enjoy the beauty of the Balloon Rosary for the full day. Amelia Grace, age 9, a member of the Children's Rosary in Porto, Portugal, helped to create the "How to" slides below on the steps of assembling a Balloon Rosary. Double sided tape was used to connect the balloons. Pictures depicted in the slides are from members of the Children's Rosary in Pakistan, Connecticut, USA, and Porto, Portugal. 

For those unable to make a Balloon Rosary, please take time on November 2 to pray especially for the intention above in bold and for the Holy Souls.

Mass Offered for Members of the Children's Rosary on October 25, 2023


A Mass will be offered on October 25, 2023 for all the members of the Children's Rosary and all who help the Children's Rosary. We continue to have a Mass said for this intention on the 25th of each month. The Eucharist is such a powerful gift from Our Lord that when we wanted to extend thanksgiving to all of you we knew of no better way to express gratitude. May Our Lord's love be poured down on all of you through the powerful sacrifice of the Holy Mass.


The picture above is from the new Children's Rosary group at St Paul Catholic Church in Mulapar Sialkot, Pakistan. They had their first meeting on September 12, 2023. Children were given handmade rosaries that we sent.
