Over 2,800 Rosary Rally Captains Get Ready

ROSSVILLE, Kans., Aug. 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Thousands of Catholic volunteers are preparing to pray the Public Square Rosary to save America from the sins of abortion and same-sex "marriage."

America Needs Fatima coordinated 2,129 Rosary Rallies last year.

This year, the goal is 3,000 Public Square Rosary Rallies nationwide and the target date is Saturday, October 11, at noon, local time.

At the group's campaign headquarters in Rossville, Kansas, coordinator Francis Slobodnik announced that they had crossed the threshold of 2,800 Rosary Rally Captains.

"Over 2,800 people agreed to organize these rallies in every state. People are really excited and momentum is picking up fast," noted Mr. Slobodnik. "Participants will proclaim their faith publicly, pray for America, and send a clear message to secularists who want to ban God from the public square."

"The office is buzzing with activity. Rosary volunteers and staff are busy contacting new rosary captains, answering questions and sending out supplies. Our biggest challenge is not recruiting rally captains, but rather finding the time to speak with all the people who call in and express interest," Mr. Slobodnik said.

"More and more people are looking to the Fatima message because it offers a sure remedy to the moral crisis in society." Mr. Slobodnik continued. "In other words, prayer, penance and conversion are the answer to our nation's pressing problems."

America Needs Fatima also distributed one hundred thousand copies of the book "Sermons of Hope for Times of Natural Disasters" by Saint Alphonsus Ligouri free of charge to Catholics and non-Catholics. To join the Rosary Rallies or to receive a free copy, call toll-free: 1-866-584-6012.
