The Marian Rally organised yearly in the month of Our Mother Mary by Accra District 4 Ladies Auxiliary and Battalion 2 Commandery was hosted this year by Queen of Peace Ladies Auxiliary. Sisters and Brothers from the seven Auxiliaries in the District and their Commanderies attended in their numbers. The participants marched while praying the rosary and singing for about three and a half km around Madina township from IPS junction to the Church premises. The theme "Blessed are you among Women" was part of the Homily of the day when Holy Mass was celebrated. Here we see some pictures from the event.

On the 18th of April at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Adenta and on the 16th May at the St. Monica's Catholic Church Adjiringano, we held outreach programmes dealing with the topic "Healthy Life Styles". The first talk was given by Dr.Siriboe and the second by Dr. Kplomedo. Parishioners were very pleased with the information given and there were questions asked.
On the 29th of May we had a wonderful and exciting trip to the Ho Leprosarium, in the Volta Region to make a donation to the patients of cash and gift items.
We visited Bishop Lodonu at his residence.
On the 30th of May, we went to Tokokoe also in the Volta Region to make a presentation of an Altar for the local Catholic Church there. This was received by Bishop Lodonu who was the main celebrant. Fifty four Brothers and Sisters attended the programme.
A blood donation exercise was also organised by the Order at the Parish. Many youth donated blood for the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital Blood Bank and the whole Parish was involved.
The Queen of Saints Degree is the highest honour bestowed on members of the Ladies Auxiliary who are in good standing and have served the Order faithfully for a minimum of twenty years. The Degree gives recognition to members for their sacrifices to the upliftment of the ideals of the Order and the mother Church. On the 1st of May 2010 two Sisters from our Auxiliary were part of the investiture of about 230 Sisters. The two Sisters, now Noble Sister Maude Dorothy Asamoah (left) and Noble Sister Cecilia Appinn Wilson (right)are seen here with the Respected President and Respected Past President/District 4 President after the investiture. We wish them many more blessings
