One Million Children Praying the Rosary for Unity and Peace - October 18th

2019 will mark the 14th year that the Catholic charity, Aid to the Church in Need has held a prayer campaign titled One million children praying the Rosary for Unity and Peace. 

However in 2019 in order to respond to Pope Francis' Extraordinary Mission Month ACN is devoting the prayer initiative to the theme of mission and is encouraging adults to pray, together with their children, especially for missionaries and for new missionary vocations.

And so we are inviting you all – teachers, catechists, educators, parents and grandparents – to participate as in previous years in this great mission of prayer by the children and to pray the Rosary with the children under your care on 18 October 2019 at 9 a.m. (or at another time that is more suitable for you), in union with thousands of other groups of children all over the world.
