In honor of the centennial of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s appearance to three small children in Fatima, Portugal, the Archdiocese of Baltimore is presenting its first-ever Rosary Congress as a way of encouraging people to pray for peace, grow in faith and develop a deeper relationship with Christ.

Perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will be available from Oct. 7 through Oct. 13 at seven churches throughout the archdiocese. Special Masses, spiritual talks, opportunities for confession and other events will also be offered, and several Catholic schools will be hosting special events.
