Bob Renaud's Art Studio
Join us at St. James
Join us in spirit from wherever you are!
Each year, St. James Minor Parish in Carthage, NY hosts a seven hour Family Rosary Crusade in honor of the Blessed Mother's Seven Sorrows.
It begins with mass at 5:15pm followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. And at the top of every hour starting at 6pm, 3 complete Rosaries are prayed for a total of 21 Rosaries by the end of the evening. Concluding at 1am with Bendiction.
All are welcome to join us here at St. James or in spirit where you are for as many Rosaries or hours as you wish.
For those that join us here at St. James for at least three hours (in honor of our Lord's suffering) they will receive a print of the painting which Bob created specifically for the Rosary Crusade, which he does each year. Many of those paintings he's created in the past can be found under the religious paintings section. However, to see ALL past paintings, specific hourly intentions, and all other information - including the history of this Crusade, you may go to the St. James Parish website: http://catholicsofcarthagecopenhagen.org/

FATIMA - 100 years
Last year was a special year as the Crusade kicks off the 100th Anniversary of Fatima and Mother's Day weekend. In recognition of the FATIMA anniversary, Bob created a unique sketch of the three shepherd children of Fatima and has turned them into prayer cards where many were sold and shared both here in the US and with a group on a Fatima Pilgrimage.
