Children are special gifts from God who have a special place in the hearts of Jesus and Mary. Their prayers reach our Lord Jesus Christ, through our dear Blessed Mother, with such immensity. This was what inspired the late Jaime Cardinal Sin to gather children from the different parishes, schools, and organizations for the Children’s Rosary Rally (CRR) every October since 1998.
We are now on our 14th year of our Annual Children’s Rosary Rally. This event has been in partnership with the Family Rosary Crusade, Ortigas and Company, and Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFCFFL). This year it will be held at the Holy Family Chapel at the Greenhills Shopping Center, from 8:30-11:30AM, on OCTOBER 13, 2012.
Children from different parishes, private and public schools, the Kids Ministry of CFCFFL come together to worship and praise, pray the rosary together, learn more about the life and virtues of Mama Mary, and culminate the event with a Eucharistic Celebration.
Through the worldwide reach of CFCFFL, we are also having our 24-Hr Beads for Peace celebration in different parishes all over the world on the same day. This will also be our 3rd year of conducting simultaneous celebrations in different parishes all over the country.
The CFC Kids for Family and Life has always played an active role in the conduct of the CRR. The different CFCFFL Districts, through your CFCKFL, held simultaneous rosary rallies at the different parishes in your CFCFFL districts and provinces. These satellite rallies coincided with the main event held in the Ortigas Area. Your community shall do likewise this year.
Below is the program of activities for your guidance:
7:30 – 8:30 Assembly of Delegates/Registration
Viewing of the Holy Family Gallery (Diorama of the Mysteries of the Rosary and The Nativity)
8:30 – 9:00 Catechism for the Children
9:00 – 10:00 Praying of the Rosary (by the children)
10:00 – 11:00 Eucharistic Celebration with Floral offering to Image of Our Lady
11:00 – 11:20 Distribution of Snacks/Goodies
We hope you can join us on this day we show our love to our Blessed Mother. Just imagine the voices and prayers of our little ones storming the gates of heaven on this meaningful day as we celebrate LIFE with Jesus through Mary! God bless us all.
