PRAY THE ROSARY!!

Have you been troubled by the apparent loss of a just and moral society, or perhaps, some suffering in your family and wanted to help but did not know how? If you are praying the rosary, then you are already helping!

Sr. Lucy of Fatima said the following in 2002 before her death; “The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary, to such an extent that there is NO problem, no matter how difficult it is, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, or even the life of peoples and nations that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is NO problem, I tell you no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary” - Sr. Lucy of Fatima.

If you are not already praying the daily rosary, please join all those who are! If you would like to receive a rosary and instructions on praying it, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us at 317-888-0873
