Meet our hosts for the evening


Fr. Daniele Criscione, PIME US Mission Center Director

Fr. Daniele, our US Mission Center Director, originally comes from Italy where he was very involved in youth spiritual animation. His experience with technology was pivotal in sharing the reality of the missions during the height of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Now, he looks to join people together in person and virtually so that all of us can share in prayer, no matter our circumstances.


Fr. Ace Valdez, PIME Missionary in Brazil

Fr. Ace hails from the Philippines where the late, American PIME Missionary Fr. Steve Baumbusch inspired his vocation. Fr. Ace carries on this passion that was passed on to him in his work in Sao Paolo. Through his evangelization and outreach, he looks to discover the next generation of PIME Missionaries.

What is the Mission Rosary?

The World Mission Rosary was envisioned by Archbishop Fulton John Sheen, then the national director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, in 1951. He made the request on a radio show that his listeners “Embrace the world in prayer.” To do so he introduced this Rosary.


The uniqueness of the rosary lies in the five colors represented by the beads of each decade. This rosary honors the work of mission, our call to be missionaries, and a dedication to world unity and peace.

Each continent is represented by a different color, making it not only a beautiful rosary, but one rich in symbolism.

What do the Colors Represent?

Yellow - symbolizes Asia and the Middle East. Together we will pray for our missionaries in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Myanmar, The Philippines, and Thailand.

Green - symbolizes Africa. Together we will pray for our missionaries in Algeria, Cameroon, Chad, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, and Tunisia.

Red – symbolizes North and South Americas. Together we will pray for our missionaries in Brazil, Mexico, and The United States.

White – symbolizes Europe. Together we will pray for our missionaries in Italy.

Blue - symbolizes Oceania. Together we will pray for our missionaries in Papua New Guinea.
