Saturday: 11 May 2019 @ 12 noon

Each year, South Africa Needs Our Lady, a campaign of Family Action South Africa, holds the Public Square Rosary Crusade, with hundreds of rosary rallies in cities and towns all across the country. In 2016, there were 450 rallies and in 2017, there were 750 rallies, and in 2018 there were 1039 groups simultaneously praying for our country and the world all across South Africa! 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 we are adding another Rosary Crusade for South Africa on 11 May 2019.

Why 11 May?

  1. Saturday closest to 13 May, the date of the first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima in Portugal.
  2. Mother’s Day is 12 May – a perfect Mother’s Day gift for our Heavenly Mother.
  3. Saturday just after our National elections
  4. Month of Our Lady
