America Needs Fatima Exceeds 2,000 Captains Milestone for Rosary Rally on October 11

HANOVER, Penn., Aug. 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- America Needs Fatima along with tens of thousands of Catholic volunteers are preparing to pray the Public Square Rosary for America on October 11, 2008.

The goal is three thousand rallies nationwide, almost 1,000 more than last year.

America Needs Fatima is promoting rosary rallies in public places to send a clear message to a suffering Nation: human solutions aren't working. We must turn to God by praying the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, begging for His help and guidance.

At the group's campaign headquarters near Topeka, Kansas, coordinator Francis Slobodnik announced that they had reached a milestone of 2,013 Rosary Rally Captains.

"Over two thousand people have agreed to organize these rallies. There are rally captains in every state, and in Puerto Rico. People are really excited about it and momentum is snowballing," noted Mr. Slobodnik. "Participants will proclaim their faith publicly, pray for America, and send a clear message to secularists who want to ban God from the public square."

"The office is buzzing with activity. Rosary volunteers and staff are busy contacting new rosary captains, answering questions and sending out supplies. Our biggest challenge is to find time to speak with all the people who want to join," Mr. Slobodnik said. "More volunteers just arrived to help handle calls."

"More and more people are looking to the Fatima message because men aren't solving the moral crisis in society." Mr. Slobodnik continued. "In other words, prayer, penance and conversion are God's answer to our problems."
