Rosary for Peace and Unity
A million children around the world, including Maltese and Gozitan children, will pray the Rosary on Wednesday, 18 October 2017
Once again the international Pontifical charity foundation, Aid to Church in Need (ACN), is inviting all Maltese children to join children from all over the world in this Rosary initiative. Last year children from 69 countries participated including 9,000 boys and girls from .Malta and Gozo.
This year 2017 we are celebrating 100 years since Our Lady Queen of the Rosary appeared to three children – Lucia, Francisco and Ġjaċinta – at Fatima asking them to continue to pray through the Rosary for unity and peace in the world. Therefore we should teach our children and encourage them to say the Rosary for Peace, which the world needs so much.
.Let us together be the voice of Our Lady and help children learn from a young age that by praying the Rosary together we can establish justice and harmony in the world.
ACN (Malta) is asking for the support of everyone – schools, parents, grandparents, teachers, youth leaders,social services – to spread the word among local children.
Every child participating will receive a free rosary. Those who wish to participate in this initiative are asked to contact ACN (Malta) on 21487818 stating the number of rosaries they need to distribute to all those taking part.
We will send the rosaries out to everyone before 18 October.
