Each year, beginning in 2007, America Needs Fatima holds the Public Square Rosary Crusade, with thousands of rosary rallies in cities all across the country. In 2017, there were 21,570 rallies and in 2018, there were 21,145 groups simultaneously praying for our country and the world all across America! These Public Square Rosary Rallies take place on the closest Saturday to October 13, feast of the last apparition of Our Lady of Fatima and the Miracle of the Sun. Besides the October Rosaries, many Rosary Rally Captains hold monthly Rosaries as well. This year, the St. Elizabeth Knights of Columbus sponsored the St. Elizabeth Public Square Rosary Crusade. It was held at the Wells Fargo (Big Light) corner on Saturday, October 12 beginning at 12:00 Noon.
