(EWTN) – As part of EWTN’s coverage of the centennial anniversary of Fatima, the Network will broadcast two special events on Friday, Oct. 13.
At 10 a.m. EWTN will broadcast the 15th annual Worldwide Children’s Eucharistic Holy Hour live from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. This annual event spiritually unites the children of the world before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. The children will make reparation to console Jesus and pray for their families, their countries and the world.
Father Chris Alar, director of the Association of Marian Helpers of the Immaculate Conception, will preside at the Holy Hour. For more information, go to childrenoftheeucharist.org.
That evening, Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl will lead a historic candlelight rosary procession and a prayer of entrustment for individuals and families to Our Lady of Fatima’s Immaculate Heart. EWTN will broadcast the event live from the basilica at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 13.
“Gather your families, wherever you are on the evening of Oct. 13, if possible, tune in to EWTN, light a candle, pray the rosary and the prayer of entrustment, spiritually uniting with Cardinal Wuerl,” said Connie Schneider, director of the two events. “We hope Catholics worldwide will join in from their dioceses, parishes, homes, nursing homes…everywhere!”
A Family Entrustment Pamphlet is available at childrenoftheeucharist.org/product/beautiful-8-page-booklet-includes-consecration-family-youth-children to help families follow along with the prayers during this special event.
