Approximately 100 people prayed the Joyful Mysteries of the rosary Oct. 14 in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, Portugal. The prayer site was a lot on Elysian Fields Avenue at Lafreniere Street in New Orleans.
The annual rosary, coordinated by Joycelyn Clementin and others, featured children participating in a procession to bring flowers to and crown Mary.
Josephite Father David Begany of Corpus Christi-Epiphany Parish blessed the statues of Mary on several tables and all those who came out.
