The 46th Anniversary honoring Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers on Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19, was a resounding success. About 400 pilgrims, many first-timers, attended the Vigil and 150 attended the Anniversary Banquet at the LaGuardia Marriott.
       Devotees from the four corners of the world assembled, including from Africa, Asia, Europe, Central and South America, Canada and, of course, the United States of America.
       It was impressive and uplifting to see so many praying the Holy Rosary for world peace and cleansing themselves in the Sacrament of Penance.
       We were honored  to host Bishop Matthew of Africa, who attended all of the events of the 46th Anniversary weekend. The good bishop left very much impressed and loaded with graces to share with the thousands of Catholic sons and daughters in his charge.  
       What a joy and tremendous consolation it must have been for Our Blessed Mother to be among Her own who made such  great sacrifices to come in pilgrimage to honor Her under the glorious title of Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers.
