We crowned our Pilgrim MTAs and recommissioned our missionaries before the 10:00 AM Holy Mass on October 22, 2016. The Holy Mass was celebrated by Father Al Davidson at St. Joseph the Worker in Pierre Part, LA. Regional Coordinator, Joan Rodrigue began the ceremony with a brief overview of the history of the Schoenstatt Movement, the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign, Father Joseph Kentenich, Blessed John Pozzobon in connection to the message of some words from Our Holy Father, Pope Francis. Special emphasis was placed on why we pray for the three graces, our world and our country. Immediately following, Father Al recommissioned the missionaries, we crowned Our Lady of the Three Graces on the Move, and celebrated the Year of Mercy. Approximately 110 members of the Bayou Region of the SRC were in attendance. The Bayou Region encompasses the parishes of Assumption, Ascension, Lafourche, and Terrebonne. To prepare for our crowning, many of us began tracking the number of rosaries said from May 1 – October 22 . We spiritually traveled from Brazil across America and then from Wisconsin to Assumption Parish. We needed a total of 6552 rosaries and we were able to exceed our goal.
