Request for Assistance at Event for World Apostolate of Fatima
Oct 06, 2006Brother Knights,
On October 6, 2006 the World Apostolate of Fatima (formerly Blue Army of Our Lady of Fatima) is hosting an event at the Immaculate Conception Basilica in Washington, DC.
The group is inviting all the school children, grades 2-8, from both Washington, DC and Arlington Dioceses to come and pray a Holy Hour for their families and families of the world. This invitation originated from former Pope John Paul II in 1996 when he invited all the children of the world to pray for their families and families of the world.
EWTN will televise this event three times on that day and it will be hosted by Irish singer Dana.
This group is asking if the Knights can provide 4th Degree Knights to line the aisle in uniform with swords drawn for the procession. The intent is to make this an annual event with this being the first. Kindly advise Mr. Joe Bedard if you care to volunteer for this event (or contact Bill Ward for phone number).
