“I encourage this beautiful initiative which involves children throughout the world, who will pray especially for the difficult situation caused by the pandemic.” Pope Francis

 Children around the world are being encouraged to come together this Sunday, October 18th, to pray for an end to the coronavirus pandemic, with the support of Pope Francis.   “A Million Children Praying the Rosary” is now in its 16th year, having begun in Venezuela’s capital Caracas in 2005, when a group of children came together to pray the rosary for peace. This year, children from 80 countries and from all continents will be taking part.  Organised by Aid to the Church in Need, this year they are inviting children to pray for an end to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Find out more at: https://acninternational.org/
