We cordially invite you and your family to join together with other families throughout the diocese in an afternoon of prayer and worship at the Thirteenth Annual Diocesan Wide Eucharistic Rosary Procession to be held in Northampton, on Sunday, June 14th, 2015. The theme of the procession will be “To Jesus through Mary: to Console Their Hearts.”
The doors to Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish Church on 99 King Street will open at 1:30 P.M. At 2:00 P.M., we will begin our prayerful event with an act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. At 2:30 P.M., we will begin reciting the Rosary while processing out of the church through downtown Northampton. Upon returning to Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish Church, we will pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet; engage in a time of silence for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and benediction, concluding by 4:00 P.M. A reception will follow at the church hall on 10 Hawley Street in Northampton.
Please note, if your child has recently made their First Communion and would like to participate, then have him or her come dressed in their Holy Communion attire to help lead the way for Jesus near the front of the procession, where they can ring bells to announce His coming. If you have a son or daughter who has just received the Sacrament of Confirmation, please have him or her wear a red t-shirt symbolizing this sacrament. Also, for those students who would like to obtain Community Service Hours, there are many ways in which they can help while participating in the procession. Please find enclosed with this letter of invitation, an informational flyer and a volunteer signup sheet.
We look forward to praying the Most Holy Rosary and celebrating the gift of Jesus Christ truly present to us in the Most Holy Eucharist, on
June 14th , 2015, at 2:00 P.M. For more information, please call:

May God bless you and your family, “Faith is strengthened when it
Children of Mary is given to others!”
