The UNITE OUR NATION Eucharistic processions and patriotic rosary rallies are a lay grassroots inspired event. The events have been spreading like wildfire across the nation; currently, being hosted in over 24 cities, college campuses and state capitals with more cities being added every day. The UNITE OUR NATION processions look to provide a rallying point for Catholics all across the country, calling Catholics to come together in solidarity to pray and worship as one people under God. We come to adore Our Eucharistic Lord and to take Him out into the streets. And in doing so, we look to set in motion spiritual reparations for our families, our country and our Church. Together, in one voice, we sing and pray for God’s grace and mercy to be unleashed upon our land. We walk with Christ as He sets out to heal and spiritually liberate our people from the unrepented sin that distresses so many souls and darkens many of our once-great institutions. In one faith and in one voice, we proclaim God’s glory and resurrection, witnessing to the world that we are His people and He is our God.
