Rosary Coast To Coast For Life And Faith

You are invited as CWL members, in fact as church parishes, to join in the Rosary Coast To Coast For Life And Faith.  We begin with the 54 day Novena starting on August 15, the Feast Day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and continue on daily until October 7, the Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary.  The culmination of this Novena is when the Rosary will be said around the world.

We have permission to use St. Mary’s Church here in Lindsay on Sunday October 7 at 3pm for a Rosary Hour.  Come and join in.  For those outside our area please consider, with your priest’s permission and joining you on October 7th.  You can join up your church like St. Mary’s Lindsay on the link below (click on the portion of the map for Canada).  There is also a place on the homepage on the link below of The Holy League of Nations to sign up to have the daily Novena prayers e-mailed to your in box so you won’t forget.

By joining in this united front in the worldwide spiritual battle we are defending the dignity of the human person – life, marriage, family and religious freedom.  What has started out as a Rosary Hour for Canada and the US has now become a world wide rolling Rosary on October 7, along the coasts and borders of countries in our churches and other areas for those who do not live near a coast, all around the world preceded by the 54 day Novena.

Together we can make a difference – please join us in prayer.

Dear Lord we pray, that through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary, to heal our countries and return them to Holiness.  Amen.
