Patriotic Rosary

Holy Cross Church on St. Croix hosted a patriotic rosary with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction on October 21. Men of the congregation read inspirational statements written by the founding fathers of the U.S., inspirational hymns were sung, and prayers were prayed for the country and for public officials. Fallen Virgin Island soldiers and victims of 9/11 were given special recognition. Father John Juszczak, CSsR, pastor, spoke of his experiences as Air Force Chaplain in Iraq, and reminded the participants to pray for the victims of war, veterans, and family members who lost a loved one, and to pray for peace and understanding.
