Rosary Rally Held for World Peace

Posted on: June 9th, 2017 by Jean Merry

On May 13, a Eucharistic Rosary Rally for World Peace was held at the home of Sr. Rita Ann Haderer. This event, with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction, was held in commemoration of the Blessed Mother’s apparition to three Portuguese children at Fatima 100 years ago on that date.

The location, marked with blue and white balloons, was on Griffin Avenue, Milwaukee, in the yard that extends into Woodland Cemetery. The outdoor altar was set up on the deck (shown hereOutdoor Altar - Rosary for Peace).

Associates, sisters and their friends were invited. Father Bernard Sippel officiated, and is pictured below being introduced by Sr. Rita Ann. Local Knights of Columbus (pictured below), sisters and associates were there to welcome and assist.

St. Paul Catholic Church on Norwich Ave. was the alternate location in case of rain.
