Rodd, the Core Team, and the teens of St. Rose of Lima are simply asking for your continued prayers – and to gather as a group to pray a rosary for all those affected by the shooting in Newtown last December.
To go along with this praying of the rosary, he’d love for you to take a picture of the group who prayed together (perhaps holding a sign with your parish name & location).
