Catholic events in Connecticut

Saturday, October 12 at 12 Noon there will be a public recitation of the Rosary in front of Saint George Church (33 Whitfield Street, Guilford)Along with the rosary there will be other Marian prayers honoring Our Lady of Fatima especially under title of the Immaculate Heart. October 13th is the 96th Anniversary of the great miracle of The Sun, witnessed by over 70,000 people in and around Fatima in 1917.  Hundreds were healed; atheists and agnostics returned to their faith. All were changed in some manner. 

There are 10 thousand groups nationwide will be praying the rosary.

Our Holy Father Francis has consecrated his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima. Pope Benedict XVI had said that those who think the message of Our Lady to the three seers is something in the distant past and has no relevance for the present are sadly mistaken. We especially hope that young families with children come and join us.
