Tioga County parishes take part in rosary rally

Several members of Tioga County’s Blessed Trinity/St. Patrick parishes gathered Oct. 15 in Newark Valley for a Public Square Rosary Rally, hosted by St. John the Evangelist Church.

The event, which is sponsored by America Needs Fatima, was among more than 20,000 rallies that took place across the United States on that day, including several in the Diocese of Rochester.

The rallies are held each October, recalling Mary’s apparitions to three children in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917. Public Square Rosary Rallies encourage Catholics to join together in public prayer for peace in the world and the conversion of hearts.
