Annual Rosary Rally - Saturday, October 12th

 

Each year, beginning in 2007, thousands of rosary rallies have taken place in cities all across the country from coast to coast. In 2017, there were 21,570 rallies and in 2018, there were 21,145 groups simultaneously praying for our country and the world.

These Public Square Rosary Rallies take place on the closest Saturday to October 13, feast of the last apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. ( See National Geographic - 5 Things to Know About Marian Apparitions - 3 minute video )

The 2019 National Rosary Rally here at St. Joseph’s will take place on Saturday, Oct. 12th starting at 12 Noon. This is not intended to be a political event, rosaries will be prayed along with intentions which include: respect for life at all stages of development; the sanctity of marriage and families; upholding constitutionally protected religious freedom; and the return of our nation to God and Holiness.   -  Plan to join us !

Take some time, ....from the busy hectic pace, ...  10 minutes, 30 minutes, or even an hour if you can, for a contemplative visit with Our Lord. 

- Reconcilation / Confession is available during the Holy Hour


“Everyone of us needs half an hour of prayer each day," remarked St. Francis de Sales, "except when we are busy—then we need an hour."  (- USCCB)


- Which, despite our often hectic pace, will help get us to -

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. What is anything in life compared to peace of soul?”
― St. Francis de Sales
