Hello Again Everyone,
ONCE AGAIN (24th YEAR), REQUESTING YOUR SUPPORT -- PRETTY SIMPLE.
As you may remember from previous years, I'm the chairman of the subject event, working for Ron Distasio, and together our 7 councils have been co-sponsoring the subject Day of Fasting, Rosary, and Benediction (this is our 24th year) for the sins of our nation against the Culture of Life. See attachments.
Request your support --pretty simple: --all materials are in the attachments. I hope we will continue to work together on this, by advertising in your Church Bulletins, and advocating at your monthly meetings, publishing in newsletters, and of course, attending (e.g., select hour of adoration, and at Benediction) hosted by St. Mark's, Londonderry, on Jan 21,22, 2021 -- Thursday night 7pm start thru Friday 7pm Benediction....
PLEASE NOTE: This year, because of COVID, there will be no refreshments or gathering other than church Benediction.(If this changes will let you all know).
I have spoken to a few of you and will try to follow-up with the rest in the next few weeks Ron Distasio and various GKs have led a decade of the rosary at the Benediction in the past, and hope you'll be there to do so again this year. I'm pretty sure I don't have all the correct emails (have last year's directory),so please forward to the correct folks.....so they can get announcements out.
The attachments gives all the details, provides some flyers (the ones with the rose symbol) that can be posted on bulletin boards, sample bulletin announcement for advertising the activity, and blank adoration signup sheets for you to use-- note PREFER to have people call / email me directly..as I've said on the sheets.
Please discuss at your councils, advertise as soon as you can, get a signup sheet posted at meetings, and in the church in January, so folks can sign up for an hour of adoration overnight from Thursday, Jan 21 thru Friday, Jan 22, 2021. The host parish is St. Mark's Church, Londonderry, Council 10488. I'll periodically email/call in Jan to get names/time slots... but folks should email or call me directly is best.
Please look over the info, and I will try to follow-up, and we can discuss any questions
Thanks in advance for spreading the word, and participating in the event.
John P Matuszewski
Council 6949, Londonderry
