Rosaries for the Troops
Want to provide some spiritual comfort for the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines serving in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan? The Military Archdiocese is collecting Rosaries to send overseas to our Catholic (and non-Catholic) servicemen. It seems even non-Catholics are taking comfort in the prayers of the Rosary.
So clean out your drawers of old Rosaries you donít use anymore, or if you know how to make your own start making them again, or even just go down to your local Catholic bookstore and buy a whole bunch. (This is a great service project for a youth group or confirmation class, by the way.)
When you do, send them (and a small donation to help defray postage costs) to:
Jo Ann Redmond
Director of Administration
Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA
415 Michigan Avenue, N.E., Suite 300
P.O. Box 4469
Washington, D.C. 20017
The troops will be very grateful.
