JERUSALEM (source:Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem) – On Thursday 17 October, and in response to the initiative of the Pontifical Foundation, Aid to the Church in Need, “One Million Children Praying the Rosary for unity and peace in the world”, the Catechetical Office of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem invited students from local Catholic schools to pray the Rosary at the Co-Cathedral of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem. 171 Students and their teachers from three schools joined on this joyful morning to pray the Luminous Mysteries.

As the students were welcomed into the Co-Cathedral; each student was given a Rosary to help them keep up with the prayer and to encourage them to pray it at home.

In response to this initiative and after the invitation of Pope Francis to dedicate the month of October to the Church’s mission and missionaries under the title of “Baptised and Sent:the Church of Christ on mission in the world”; the participants also prayed for the missionary work in keeping the Word of God alive through preaching the Good News to the world.
