                                Report on the 
Family Rosary Crusade 2011

                                                                           October 15th, 2011      

The Family Rosary Crusade was held at the Civic Center in San Francisco, and was attended by about 2000 people, many priests, nuns, the Missionary of Charity sisters, Bishops Justice, Walsh, and Wang, and parishioners from Sacramento, Modesto, all over Northern California, and many other states.
Fr. Lawrence Goode, Spiritual Director of the San Francisco Senatus, gave the Introductory Remarks, and Fr. Apostoli gave the keynote speech. The weather was ideal, a beautiful sky with some clouds and a gentle breeze, the most beautiful day of the year in San Francisco, thanks to Our Lady. Five Families and their children, each took turns leading a decade of the Rosary. Also delightful were the many mothers, fathers, and children present
who came and said the Rosary.

The San Francisco Senatus wishes to thank the SF Archdiocese, Knights of Columbus, EWTN, Eva Muntean of the Walk for Life, Fr. Apostoli, all of the loyal Spiritual Directors of the Legion Of Mary, the
Cantors, the Choirs, those families who participated in saying the Rosary, the Diocesan Priests, The Dominicans and other Religious Orders, the Parishioners from many Churches, the San Francisco Police Department, the Recreational Park Police, The SF Park and Recreation Department, Sound and facilities management, those others who offered assistance, those Legion of Mary Officers who worked hard to make the Rally a success, those who contributed funds, and most of all, the citizens of San Francisco, for their kindness and assistance.
