Saturday, October 7
There will be almost 20,000 Public Square Rosary rallies occurring across the nation this October.
Catholics will be gathering in a public setting praying the Rosary for America as her citizens face
difficult and morally challenging times.
Please join us as we stand together in the public square and pray for the conversion of our country
and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the 100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun.
In order to reach Catholics who have fallen away, we want to make this year’s public rally really
public and off Church grounds. The rally will take place on Saturday, October 7 from noon to 1:00 PM at
Tuckahoe Village Square, by the clock. Bring family members, friends, a rosary, and a folding chair if
you cannot stand for a long period of time. We encourage all parishioners to attend.
Contact Fran at 779-4604 with questions.
Finally, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!
