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

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