Our Rosary Cruise Was a Great Success!


We had an absolutely wonderful Rosary Cruise to benefit our new Rachel’s Vineyard site on the nearby Waupaca Chain o’Lakes this past Sunday!

Thank you to all who attended, for your generous support of our ministry, and to all those who were praying for the success of our first fundraising event!

There were 94 of us on the boat, including the Captain, whom I found out is Catholic! Represented among the group were 16 different parishes from 10 communities in Wisconsin. We were blessed to be led in the Rosary by Fr. Joseph O’Hara, and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy by Fr. Arul Joseph. It was such a beautifully peaceful and Spirit-filled time of reflection and prayer together.

Special thanks to Will Goodman and the Servants of Our Lady of Guadalupe, for bringing the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe from the Marian Center for Peace; to Dan Buss for donating several of the Door Prizes; and to all those who donated food and beverages for the cruise, and helped with set-up and clean-up.

The neatest extra blessing: although it started clouding over during the Rosary, and looked like it was going to storm (and it was in the distance,) suddenly a rainbow appeared! It got really intensely bright & beautiful, too. And we never got more than a small sprinkle.

If you’d like to see more pictures of the event, you can check out our “Scrapbook” on Facebook. (You do not have to be on Facebook to view the album. Also, there are a few other pictures, etc, relating to establishing the site.)

Thanks again to all those who attended, and to those who contributed in so many other ways to the success of this event! God truly continues to shower His blessings upon our site!


Please continue to pray for us, as we prepare for our upcoming retreat, October 14-16, 2011.
