Rosary Rallies for Fatima anniversary


Public Square Rosary services, sponsored by members of a national Catholic organization known as America Needs Fatima (, will include about 25,000 rallies that will take place all across the United States. They will coincide with the 102nd anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun that was witnessed by many during Our Lady’s 1917 apparitions in Fatima, Portugal.

The Rosary and other prayers will be offered for the reparation for the sins and offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of the United States. Participants are encouraged to bring a rosary and a lawn chair and an umbrella if necessary.

All events will take place at noon on Saturday, Oct. 12, unless otherwise stated.
