A Word from Father John Phalen, CSC

10/19/2011

The President of Holy Cross Family Ministries is in the Philippines celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Father Peyton’s First Rosary Rally there. The following is his latest blog entry: frjohn


Marinduque is a beautiful tropical island south of Luzon in the Philippines. There are 12 Family Rosary Crusade groups here; each one composed of about 20 members dedicated to promoting the Family Rosary. Bishop Rey Evangelista accompanied a gathering of about 1,000 people for an afternoon Rosary and Mass. George Olympia, a lay leader in the Church here, guided the planning of this lively event, with song, dance and testimonies. Welcomed by a band and folks dressed as Roman soldiers from the annual Passion Play that makes the island famous, our Family Rosary team brought cameras which covered the event for TV.
