What a beautiful celebration of the Feast of the Assumption! Thank you Father Scardella, Deacon and choir at St. Mary's. Father Scardella led us in he rosary/novena following Mass and Anne Marie Mullin, longtime friend and former board member of the CNY Marian Center, presented the talk on the Fatima messages about First Saturday devotions. Prior to St. Mary's we visited Alice and Nelosn who head the rosary making at the Marian Center. Drop in to the Center any Tuesday from 1:30-3:30 and help make rosaries or learn how to make them and do it at home. Alice and Nelson have sent rosaries all over the Diocese of Syracuse, the country and the world. And he made a special rosary for Our Lady's visit. What a beautiful ministry!
Check out our slideshow from yesterday. Margaret and daughter Katy shared some special prayer time with Our Lady. Then Margaret and hsband, Bruce, transported the Pilgrim Satue to Joseph House for Women, a special place that nurtures and cares for women who ned help with life skills and motherhood. Check them out on Facebook or jhfw.org to see how you can help them as they care for new life.
And then we had a wonderful night at the Marian Center celebrating the evening with the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary, Novena to Our Lady Untiier of Knots, and a talk and healing prayer with Richard Bingold. He shared the story of the Pilgrim Rosary and prayed with many of those present.

Our Lady is now doubly blessed by both Father Adam and Pope Francis. And check out the pefect lighting on her thanks to Father Adam and his persistence.
We prayed the Rosary with Jane Pigott and some of her sister Theresians at her new residence. It was a lovely prayer time and Jane reminded us of the many Rosary rallies she had led at Auriesville Shrine The Theresians gather monthly to pray for the intercession of St. Therese the Little Flower for vocations to the priesthood.
