Our Knights of Columbus Council leads us in praying the Rosary one Sunday each month for a special intention. The schedule for 2021 is below. Whether you have experience with the Rosary or want to learn this amazingly powerful prayer, this is the perfect opportunity to pray the Rosary in a group.
We will be leading the monthly Rosary in October in honor of the feast of the Our Lady of the Rosary on Thursday, October 7. The Rosary will be a virtual presentation via Zoom beginning at 7:00 pm. Access the Zoom link here.
On October 7, the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the yearly feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. Known for several centuries by the alternate title of “Our Lady of Victory,” the feast day takes place in honor of a 16th century naval victory at that Battle of Lepanto which secured Europe against Turkish invasion. Pope St. Pius V attributed the victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who was invoked on the day of the battle through a campaign to pray the Rosary throughout Europe. In 1960 Pope John XXIII changed the title to “Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary”.
Please strongly consider participating in this Rosary via Zoom with your entire family because Mary loves when her children gather together to pray the Rosary. Why does Mary, Our Lady of the Rosary, love the rosary so much? First of all, because it’s a quick and easy way to grow closer to Jesus. Secondly, it’s a simple prayer. Anyone can learn it. And it’s easy to take your rosary with you anywhere you go. Third, it is a powerful weapon against the power of Satan.
Saints, sinners, popes, everyday people like us… anyone can turn to Our Lady of the Rosary in times of trouble or in thanksgiving. Whether it’s a physical battle like Lepanto, a spiritual battle, or everyday battles with stress or anxiety, Our Lady of the Rosary is always there for us.
