Children's Rosary Christmas Cards!

We are excited to release our new Children's Rosary Christmas Card for 2022. This year's card took inspiration through traditional Ukrainian art of the Nativity.  

The card was painted by Iris Ryan, a member of the Children's Rosary and younger sister to Abigail Ryan, who painted our prior cards. Iris is twelve years old and lives with her parents and seven siblings in Wisconsin. She is pictured below.

For each box of cards sold, one dollar goes to the nonprofit, Children's Rosary. This helps further the mission of the Children's Rosary, which is to support the prayer lives of children and to help to bring more children to prayer. There is also mention of the Children's Rosary on the back of each card, which provides an opportunity for each card to be an open door for Our Blessed Mother.

To purchase this card through EWTN religious catalogue, click HERE.

We also have some of our Children's Rosary Christmas card collection available at Cenacle Press in Ireland; to view, click HERE. Cards are also available at Sunrise Marian Distribution in Canada as well. To view, click HERE

Rosary Procession in Hamburg, Germany

The Children's Rosary in Hamburg, Germany, was part of a special October Procession of Our Lady of Fatima through the city. They carried a Children's Rosary banner and candles. See pictures below: 

Over 50,000 Handmade Rosaries Arrive in Uganda

On April 23, 2022, six barrels were sent to Uganda. The total number of rosaries included in the 6 barrels came to 51,621 rosaries. Almost all of these rosaries were handmade. In total three hundred Children's Rosary books were sent along with 150 Child Consecration books. We are grateful to those who support our mission through financial donations and the hundreds who make handmade rosaries and send them to us from the US and Canada. We try to send only handmade rosaries as we know these are a double gift of both a rosary and a tremendous amount of love. These barrels arrived in October at Kampala. One barrel went to the Children's Rosary in the Luweero Diocese, one barrel went to the Children's Rosary in the Masaka Diocese, two barrels went to the Children's Rosary in the Mityana Diocese, and two barrels went to the Children's Rosary in the Kampala Archdiocese. We received a lovely call from the Archbishop of Kampala who is extremely supportive of the Children's Rosary. The Chancellor of the Archdiocese received the rosaries on behalf of the Archbishop on Monday, October 31. A picture of the barrels being received by the Chancellor is shown above. A special thank you to Fr. Jude Ssali and Henry Bukenya for helping to deliver the barrels to the Archdiocese office. 

Massive Distribution of Rosaries in East Africa

In addition to the rosaries that arrived in Uganda, a barrel with 8,497 handmade rosaries arrived in Tanzania along with a Children's Rosary banner. This was transported via bus to Fr. Ruwaichi in Moshi diocese. Half of the contents of the barrel were picked up by Br. Cleophus to share with the Children's Rosary in Central Kenya and also to transport to the Children's Rosary along the coast of Africa in Mombasa. There are still two more barrels of handmade rosaries en route to Tanzania which contain collectively over sixteen thousand handmade rosaries. 

Children's Rosary in Pakistan

The new Children's Rosary group in Maly Chak Purana prayed the rosary daily in October and also released a balloon rosary at the end of the month.

First Children's Rosary Forms in Malawi

We have great news that a Children's Rosary has formed at St. John the Baptist (Kanyama) Catholic Parish in the Dedza Diocese of Malawi in Central Africa. Fr. Kalumbi has reported thus far 102 children have registered and 93 actively attend meetings which are held on Mondays and Saturdays at 15:00. Fr. Kalumbi shared, "they are charming children and more children are joining. Parents and church leaders are extremely happy for the formulation of the group." 

The parish has twenty-one outstations, and efforts are being made to initiate more Children's Rosary prayer groups in the outstations. There are also fifteen Catholic schools. We plan to send more rosaries to this parish to help in introducing the Children's Rosary also to the schools. 

Nine Days of Prayer and Fasting

A special thank you to all who joined our nine days of prayer and fasting from September 29-October 7, 2022. Many blessings were experienced as a result. One of these was the notification that paper had been located which would be needed for an upcoming printing of the Child Consecration book in Spanish. There have been paper shortages since the spring, and our printer had been trying to source the paper for six months. Just three days after the fast ended, an email came that paper had been located. This is just one example of how prayers and sacrifices can take a situation that seems "stuck" and aid a resolution. The month of October was full of joyful news of new groups forming at distant places around the globe. So often there may be no news on the website or a long span without a newsletter. This is usually as a result of an influx of good things happening and an inability to respond to all the new developments and adequately relay them. But be assured a multitude of efforts in different parts of the globe continue to move forward. Prayers and sacrifices are critical to allowing Our Lady's plans to continue to unfold, for the Children's Rosary is under her guidance. We praise God for all the victories we continue to witness.
