Passing on this message from my friend Fr. Willy, the Director of Family Theater Productions here in Hollywood.
There are 41 billboards around greater Los Angeles announcing the Rosary Bowl for May 19th, 2007, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. This historic event comes to you from Family Theater and its parent ministry, Holy Cross Family Ministries.
Radio and television in Spanish and English, along with local newspapers, are promoting the Rosary Bowl and expecting 65000-70000 people to celebrate together under the banner of "A WORLD AT PRAYER IS A WORLD AT PEACE."
There will be three incredible speakers:
* Bishop Oscar Solis, the first Philippino American bishop and beloved Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles for Ethnic Ministries,
* Immaculée Ilibagiza, courageous survivor of the Rwandan Genocide, and author of her autobiography, "Left To Tell."
* Carl Anderson, the dynamic leader of the largest Catholic fraternal organization in the world, the Knights of Columbus.
There will be music and song including a special Rosary Bowl choir and instrumental ensemble, featuring the celebrated member of the Gypsy Kings Family Mario Reyes and his group. Paul Harrigan, a frequent participant at Prayer and Pasta events is coordinating the music and song for the Rosary Bowl.
You can also join former Miss Mexico, 2000, actress and braodcaster, Jacky Bracamontes, and others as they lead the 50+ nationalities of southern California in praying the Rosary.
His Eminence, Cardinal Roger Mahony will preside at Benediction and preach at this massive gathering of the many peoples who make up the Catholic and Christian community of Greater LA.
If you wish to volunteer, please contact Family Theater at 323-874-6633 and/or visit the RosaryBowl.org website.
We still need volunteers. To get involved, please plan to show up one week before the event at the Rose Bowl May 12th at 11 AM. Your participation as a volunteer would be a great blessing to all of us and most of all to yourself.
See you there!
