Blythe Kaufman emailed me when she happened to see my blog post on children which was highlighted on the New Evangelist Monthly. She hoped that I could help spread the word about her children’s prayer groups. Well I am delighted to feature them.

The Children’s Rosary is a prayer group movement that was begun out of love for Our Lady and Her Son. Jesus tells us “Truly, I say to you unless you turn and become like children you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 18:3). The Children’s Rosary is an effort to begin in parishes rosary prayer groups composed of children and led by children. Through prayer of the Rosary Our Lady will guide our young people while at the same time sanctify families and Parishes

Blythe related an interesting story about starting rosary groups for kids:
.
I read that you are fIMG_0115rom Canada.
Some months ago a mom contacted me from British Columbia.  She said she and her husband were going to Kenya for the summer with their teenage daughter.  Her husband would be volunteering in a school for disabled children.
 .
She felt called to do something with children and the rosary and stumbled on our site.  She saw we had groups in Nairobi and was eager to contact them and spend her time helping to begin Children’s Rosary groups in Kenya.  She is there now and was at a Children’s Rosary at Holy Trinity Church in Nairobi yesterday.  Before she left Canada for the summer she began a Children’s Rosary at her parish.
 .
It began small with only about 6 children but a few teenagers got excited and they helped to build the group to 20 now.  The target age of the prayer group is 4-14.Timor Leste Children's Rosary 10.5

 Many of our groups are small 10 children or less. One thing I mention to anyone thinking to begin a group is that numbers do not matter.  Even a couple of children is beautiful.
