EUROPE: POLAND- MISSIONARY ROSARY PROMOTED AMONG YOUTH

Agenzia Fides report – One of the most popular Polish Catholic magazines, Niedziela, based in Czestochowa, recently published on its website (www.niedziela.pl ) a survey on the presence of Missionary Rosary groups in Polish parishes. According to the results of the survey, 30.26% of the readers of the magazine responded that there is a Missionary Rosary group at their parish, while 35.53% of readers said that this group does not exist in their parish. The survey revealed another interesting fact: 34.21% of respondents said they did not know the pastoral and missionary significance of the Missionary Rosary. "The survey results show that we still need to spread the initiative of the Missionary Rosary in our parishes, and we should especially gear this pastoral activity towards the youth," Fides was told by Fr. Jacek Gancarek, Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies in the Archdiocese of Czestochowa. http://www.fides.org/aree/news/newsdet.php?idnews=27521&lan=eng
