Is October 13th Important to You?

Passing on the information that America Needs Fatima is sponsoring the annual Rosary Rally for 2018. https://www.americaneedsfatima.org/Rally-News/rosary-rally-central-2.html The link has all the information.

I signed up to be a Rosary Captain, last year, and it was a wonderful experience. We were blessed in that even though our site faced two, major streets, we didn’t get any adverse response to praying our public Rosary in honor of the Blessed Mother. Every year, more and more people are signing up for this. Given the current state of the world, we may seemingly be a ‘drop in the bucket’ but we get to use a powerful weapon against the evils of the world. Last year was the 100th anniversary of the miracle at Fatima. This year, we get to participate in the first anniversary towards the next century!

Check out the site and you will find they have covered just about every question/need. A banner will be supplied as well as the prayers for the public Rosary. Encourage people to make their own banners and bring friends. Remember to take pictures and share them with America Needs Fatima.
