Calgary Regnum Christi Section holds prayer “road rally” event worth repeating

Queenship of Mary Image

Calgary, Canada -- The Calgary Section honored our Blessed Mother with a day of family fun earlier this year.  With two Marian feasts approaching this month, the Assumption of Mary on August 15 and the Queenship of Mary on August 22, the event, which Calgary held in May of this year, might be worth repeating by other Regnum Christi sections and families. 

Calling it the “Queenship of Mary Adventure,” RC families were invited to a prayer “road rally” of sorts.  They were asked to visit five area Marian churches to pray a decade of the rosary at each, and then they met at a local park for a picnic. 

The men organized and provided the games to get the kids active at
Sun Spinner
The sun-spinner craft highlighted the Fatima Miracle of the Sun
the picnic, and the women had prepared a packet of materials for participants, including a treasure map telling which churches to visit, and a rosary.  Families also received a Mary “passport” with stickers to put on the map after each church visit, and had a Marian trivia question to solve.
 

To honor Mary in her apparition as Our Lady of Fatima, celebrating its 95th anniversary this year, participants also got a craft and mission package to complete at home.  Click here to for more information on the craft they received. 

Tara Coady, age 7, said of the event, “I thought that it was very

holy, and it was very, very fun.” 
 

Great idea Calgary!
