Rosary Rally at Planned Parenthood Office in Newbury Park on Saturday, October 14th, 2 PM. Honoring the 100th Anniversary of Marian apparitions at Fatima, Portugal, our rally will be one of approximately 20,000 similar events being conducted throughout the United States on October 14th. This is the 10th. year these rallies have been coordinated by the "America Needs Fatima" organization, and they've grown in number from 2,100 to about 20,000, in that time). We will meet in the Ralph's parking lot, on Ventu Park Road, and process to the Planned Parenthood office on Hillcrest Ave, where Deacon Jess Pasos will lead us in the Rosary. Those who cannot process, for physical reasons, will be transported directly to the Planned Parenthood site. All parishioners, their family members, and friends are invited and encouraged to participate. This event is sponsored by Monsignor O’Connell Knights of Columbus Council #8072.
