October, Month of the Rosary
We have something very exciting to share with you.
Even in this time of worry, confusion, and darkness, there are tremendous signs of hope, including a renewed devotion to Our Lady and the power of the rosary, and a firmer trust in her promise at Fatima that “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
In that spirit, we are inviting you to gather to pray the rosary with other believers around the world as Ralph Martin, Lila Rose, Kimberly Hahn, Sr. Miriam James Heidland, Fr. Donald Calloway, Fr. Boniface Hicks, Fr. Josh Johnson, Chris Stefanick, and many other Catholic teachers and influencers lead us through the sacred mysteries.
This will be a live, worldwide, virtual event at 6:30 pm central on October 7, 2021—yes, that’s right, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary!
(The time translates to 1:30am Friday 8 October in South Africa)
You will need to register in advance to receive the link to join in. Here’s where to sign up: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/avilafoundation/568089#.
We are asking you to share this information with all of your praying family and friends. Imagine what will happen as thousands gather to pray with Our Lady’s weapon in hand!
If you have a prayer group or bible study group, you are encouraged to gather together and watch, pray, and participate as a community. Make an evening of it!
Will you register, and help us spread the word?
Thank you in advance and mark your calendars now!!
Our Lady of Victory, pray for us!
Yours in Christ,
Dan and Stephanie Burke
