Children’s Rosary Advisory Board

Meet the Members of Our Advisory Board.

Father Andrew Apostoli, CFR, is a member and co-founder of the Community of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. He was ordained a priest by Bishop Fulton J. Sheen in 1967. Currently, he is serving as a Vice-Postulator for the Cause of Canonization for Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. Father Apostoli currently hosts the show Sunday Night Prime on EWTN.

Fr. Apostoli has been a wonderful part of the Children’s Rosary. His love of Our Blessed Mother, the Rosary, and his simplicity resonate with the children.

Immaculee

Immaculée Ilibagiza is a survivor of the genocide in Rwanda. She survived by hiding with 7 other women in a tiny bathroom for 91 days. She credits the Rosary with helping her find peace and also forgiveness for those who killed her friends and family. During her time in hiding she recalls praying 27 Rosaries per day. Immaculée is a beautiful example of love and forgiveness for our children.
