  46th Anniversary Procession on June 18, 2016
      A Snapshot  
         The 46th Anniversary honoring Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers on Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19, was a resounding success. Over 400 pilgrims attended the Anniversary Vigil and over 150 attended the Anniversary Banquet at the LaGuardia Marriott.
         It was impressive and uplifting to see so many praying the Holy Rosary for world peace and cleansing themselves in the Sacrament of Penance. A visiting bishop and seven priests heard confessions for two hours.
Michael Mangan,
SMWA President, delivered a powerful and encouraging talk at the Anniversary Banquet on the wisdom of the Bayside Message.
           What a joy and tremendous consolation it must have been for Our Blessed Mother to be among Her own who made such  great sacrifices to come in pilgrimage to honor Her under the glorious title of Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers.
  Dear Michael,
For me the weekend at Bayside was so wonderful, it was a grace-filled weekend. I will bring back to Malawi many graces. I was very impressed with the Bishop. He is a very humble bishop.
