Why? Because the world urgently needs Peace and Unity Because God wants us to pray “Because prayer leads to faith, faith leads to love, love leads to service and service leads to peace”
Because it is a prayer and meditation about the mysteries of our faith. Because by the hand of Mary we get near Jesus. Because the holy Virgin wants us to pray it. Why The Holy Rosary?
Why children? Because children are the future of the world. Because Jesus said: “Let the children be with me”. Because each time the Virgin has appeared to children she has asked them to say the Rosary.
At the schools The schools that wish to participate will receive support material From 4th grade to high school (A-Level) Say the mysteries of the rosary according to the day. From 1st to 3rd grade Say only one mystery or as many as the teacher considers appropriate. Kindergarten Carry out activities related to the rosary (for ex.): - Color a rosary. - Appropriate prayers and songs. - Bring flowers to the Virgins. Where?
