  • Join the 100th Anniversary 2017 Public Square Rosary Crusade at noon Oct. 14 in the Winn-Dixie parking lot in Chiefland.

    In this historic year of the Fatima Centennial (1917-2017), the world is at a historic crossroad. God is more offended than ever as people ignore Our Lady’s maternal request to “stop offending God.”

    Yes, we must listen to Our Lady’s request and stop sinning if we hope to enjoy God’s blessings and to avert His wrath. He will hear us, if we pray through the intercession of His Blessed Mother. That’s why we’re doing the 2017 Public Square Rosary Crusade.

    In the Secret of the Rosary, Saint Louis de Montfort said, “Public prayer is far more powerful than private prayer to appease the anger of God and call down His mercy, and Holy Mother Church, guided by the Holy Ghost, has always advocated public prayer in times of public tragedy and suffering.”
