St Joseph church, Salmon Arm………….Totus Tuus Rosary Makers of Canada……

 In 1978 when (Saint) John Paul II became Pope, he consecrated his pontificate to the Blessed Virgin Mary and adopted this Latin phrase, ‘TOTUS TUUS’ as his personal motto…. TOTUS TUUS’ is Latin for ‘Totally Yours’.  Did you know?   Canadian Rosary Makers have made and distributed over 96,000 rosaries during the past year and a half, undeterred by the pandemic. Most of the rosaries were sent to hospitals, jails, seminaries, schools, parishes and convents in Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, India, Venezuela, Colombia. This years special rosary is made in blue and yellow representing Ukraine.   Local parishioners Randy & Wendy Piccini, Linda Faust, Bev Clermont, Angeline Aggasiz have been busy making more than  1,000 and many more to come. Join them if you have the time!
