Each year, "America Needs Fatima" holds the Public Square Rosary Crusade across America, with thousands of rosary rallies in cities with participants simultaneously praying for the country and the world.
This year, over 20,000 rallies are being planned with Crofton as one of the sites.
The Patriotic Rosary for America will be recited at on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 11 am at the Crofton South City Park.
This year's date of October 13 is very significant for the rosary rally as it coincides with the Feast of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, Portugal where the Blessed Mother appeared to three shepherd children and the sun appeared to dance in the sky witnessed by tens of thousands.
As in years past, the rosary will be said for the preservation of religious freedoms, for an end to abortion and euthanasia, asking God's blessing on each state of the United States.
In case of inclement weather, the rosary will be held at the St. Rose Church in Crofton.
The prayer service is sponsored by St. Rose Pro Life group. The public is invited with refreshments served afterwards.
