Leach, president, parish women's club, back, and from left, Edward Ruiz, president, Holy Name Society, and Lawrence Cullen, vice president, St. Vincent de Paul Society to attend Mary's Hours." The article partially reads, "Valley Catholics will join with those throughout the Los Angeles area to observe Mary's Hour from 3 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Mary's Hour, which originated in the Los Angeles Archdiocese in 1948, is held annually to pray the Rosary in unison for world peace, according to Father John P. Languille, director of the devotion. The theme of this year's Mary's Hour will be 'Mary, Queen of the World, Grant a True and Lasting Peace Among All People."
