Rose Ferron Foundation of Rhode Island Presents


You are cordially invited to the first “Little Rose Fundraiser,” at Savini’s Pomodoro
Italian Kitchen & Bar with Hosts Mitch & Roger Savini, 476 Rathbun St., Woonsocket,
RI  02895, on
Saturday, October 28, 2017, 11am – 4pm.
 

The Rose Ferron Foundation of Rhode Island continues to honor Marie-Rose Ferron
during this year of the 81st Anniversary of her death, a well-known, documented,
bedridden Mystic, Stigmatist and Ecstatic of Woonsocket with a large U.S., Canada
and International following.  Many found consolation and healing through her prayers
and sacrifices during her lifetime (1902-1936) and still find great comfort today by
praying her Novena, being inspired by her piety and virtues, and visiting her
Precious Blood Cemetery gravesite.

The event includes:  A family style chicken dinner, viewing of the 1989 EWTN
interview by Mother Angelica with Jeanne Savard Bonin, Canadian nurse, teacher
and author of “A Stigmatist – Marie-Rose Ferron”; an informal talk on Little Rose
by David P. Ethier, President, Rose Ferron Foundation of Rhode Island; testimonies
by devotées of healings attributed to Little Rose; displays of her habit, clothing,
’mementos’ and personal belongings; and, a visit to Precious Blood Cemetery
gravesite.  We will be doing the same as at least 1,000 people who visit her grave
every year – experiencing tremendous solace and healings in their needs.

The proceeds are going towards a permanent home in Woonsocket for:
‘The Chapel of Thorns,’ (designed and built by her cousin, Rose Myette, under the
direction of Little Rose); an extensive collection of Little Rose’s ‘mementos’;
an office to greet visitors who stopover to the center; a book nook; a place for
quiet reflection; to help Little Rose be better known and loved in Woonsocket,
Rhode Island and in the world!

Tickets are $25.00/per person and available the first week of September at:
Savini’s Pomodoro Italian Kitchen & Bar, 476 Rathbun St., Woonsocket
Timeless Antiques, 91 Main St., Woonsocket
Scituate Chiropractic Center, 6 Village Plaza Way, North Scituate

Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, the event offering a great
opportunity to strengthen participation within wider community.

The President is sharing his thoughts as the NFL puts its new National Anthem policy on hold. Trump tweeted that he can't believe the debate is alive and well again. He said the policy for protesting during the National Anthem should be a one game suspension for the first offense, and a season suspension with no pay for a second.        President Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen secretly recorded a conversation with Trump two months before the 2016 election, according to a New York Times report. Rudy Giuliani says the tape of Trump talking about a payment to a former Playboy model proves Trump's innocence. Giuliani also insists the payment was never made in the first place.        Most of the victims of the duck boat capsizing in Branson may have been family members. Missouri Governor Michael Parson says a woman told him nine of the people who lost their lives yesterday were members of her family. The boat was carrying 31 people when it capsized on Table Rock Lake due to bad weather.        A new survey shows that Americans think the economy is the most important thing going well in the country. Thirty-seven-percent of U.S. adults in a new Gallup survey said the economy and low unemployment rates are what's right in America. Gallup says the poll was conducted to determine why so many Americans are satisfied with how things are going in the country.        The National Weather Service says 27 tornadoes ripped across central Iowa yesterday. The storms spread through multiple towns east of Des Moines causing extensive damage and power outages. One of the more noteworthy structures that was damaged was the Marshall County Courthouse.        There's still time to get a winning ticket for tonight's Mega Millions drawing. The jackpot climbed to 422-million after no one won the big prize in Tuesday's drawing. If you do draw the winning numbers tonight and decide to take the cash option, you'll get a cool 254-million-dollars.
