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
Burrillville Chiropractic Center, 1991 Victory Hwy., Glendale

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

President Trump says the media is to blame for the fallout after his controversial summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In a tweet today, Trump insisted that the summit was a great success. He again accused the mainstream media of being fake and of being the "enemy of the people." Trump said he looks forward to a second meeting with Putin to continue serious discussions on terrorism, cyber attacks, Middle East peace and North Korea.       The President will host a "Pledge to the American Worker" event at the White House today. At a Cabinet meeting yesterday, President Trump said he will be making a "big announcement" on a workforce training initiative. He added that he wants Americans to have choices about jobs. Trump said he wants people to find jobs that they really love.        A North Texas neighborhood is being evacuated as police hunt for two suspects in a bank shooting and robbery. Fort Worth police are focusing on a house which they believe is potentially connected with what happened this morning at Veritex Bank. The house is a couple miles away from the bank where three women were shot. They're expected to survive. No word on any arrests.       Harvey Weinstein's legal counsel is claiming the disgraced movie mogul and Ashley Judd had an agreement to let him touch her. The Los Angeles Times is reporting Weinstein had a bargain that would allow him to touch Judd if she won an Academy Award in one of his films. The information was revealed as Weinstein's attorneys are looking to get a federal judge to drop Judd's defamation lawsuit against him. Judd called the incident a "mock bargain" and a way to exit the situation.        The founder of Papa John's is calling for his company to conduct an investigation into the meeting where he admits to have used the N-word. In a letter to the company's board of directors, John Schnatter said stepping down from his position in the company was a mistake. Schnatter also said during the phone call with a marketing agency, he used the N-word as a way to emphasize how much he hates racism after the agency wanted to hire rapper Kanye West to represent Papa John's.        BMW is launching a new ride-sharing service in Seattle to compete with Uber and Lyft. The program is called Reach Now. Customers can hail a car immediately or schedule a ride up to a week in advance. Trips cost two-dollars-40-cents per mile.
