  1. We received this wonderful Update from Manuela at the Belize Rosary Mission Today on their May Mission! 

    Dear All,

     
    On May 13, 2016, feast day of Our Lady of Fatima, thousands of Belizeans gathered in a stadium in Belize City to participate in the largest Eucharist adoration and global living Rosary event in the country. At the start of the event, my aunt Thomasita was called up to the stage where she was acknowledged for the rosary mission work in Belize by touching each child, teacher and principal in the Catholic schools in all the villages, towns and cities nationwide.  She was honored with a plaque. 
    Manuela and Thomasita receive a plaque to express gratitude for their work
     
    Please keep praying for us as we travel to the Corozal district schools this week and to the Toledo District schools next week to teach the children the rosary.
     
    Thank You, 
    Manuela

  2. “What a fantastic spectacle is presented on this stage by your gathering here today! Who claimed that today’s youth has lost their sense of values? Is it really true that they cannot be counted on?”

    World Youth day is a gathering of young people to celebrate their faith! now in its 30th year, I was delighted to receive a last minute invitation for our daughter to attend! This is such an opportunity and whilst she has been invited by Argyll and the Isles and the Diocese of Aberdeen, not our own Archdiocese of Glasgow, I immediately said yes on her behalf! This is the future of our church, the Catholic Church, in the world - such a beautiful opportunity to bear witness to Christ! 

  3. If you follow us on social media, you may have noticed some excitement a few weeks ago on instagram and facebook! Beads with Faith have been looking for someone to help us with artwork for a VERY long time ... I love to create Rosary Beads and Chaplets and can draw a little - but wanted drawings that were new and of a great standard to include in our resources for schools and individuals - I have spoken to many people but we never found the right fit! 

    Then. Lo and behold I come across a wonderful artist on instagram - Drawing the Faith with Mary - I was blown away and I hope you are too :)
