Cor Jesu - October 21

October is the Month of the Rosary! The next Cor Jesu will be held at St. Mary, Help of Christians in Sleepy Eye. Watch the video below to see how the Rosary, October, and Help of Christians all have a connection.

To celebrate the month of the Rosary, everyone will receive a free glow-in-the-dark rosary of their own. We will be reciting (and singing) the Holy Rosary in a candle-lit church during adoration with confessions available. We'll also sing some contemporary praise songs to Jesus. Is there a better way to spend a Friday night during MEA? No. No, there's not. So invite all youth to Cor Jesu on October 21!

Why is October the Month of the Rosary?

Click the video below to find out. Particularly in today's society, Church history is an important topic, since much of what students learn in their secular history books is legitimately anti-Catholic, revisionist history. Receptivity to the Faith is often influenced by preconceived ideas of what the Faith is, and these preconceived ideas are often influenced by what people hear about the Faith, and what people often hear about the Faith is usually given to them by someone who does not love the Church. So, again: Church history is important.
