Hello Again Everyone,
ONCE AGAIN (27th YEAR), REQUESTING YOUR SUPPORT -- PRETTY SIMPLE.
As you may remember from previous years, I'm the chairman of the subject event, and together with our councils, have been co-sponsoring the subject Day of Fasting, Rosary, and Benediction (this is our 27th year) for the sins of our nation against the Culture of Life. See attachments.
Request your support --pretty simple: --all materials are in the attachments -- I hope we will continue to work together on this, by advertising in your Church Bulletins, and advocating at your monthly meetings, publishing in newsletters, and of course, attending (e.g., select hour of adoration, and at Benediction) hosted by St. Mark's, Londonderry, on 22,23 Jan , 2024 -- Monday night 7pm adoration start thru Tuesday 7pm Benediction start.
Various GKs have led a decade of the rosary at the Benediction in the past, and hope to do so again this year.
I took the latest emails/contacts from the state directory, but if any errors, please forward to the correct folks.....and cc me for my records.
