“There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.” Sister Lucia, of the seers of Fatima
Throughout history, our Blessed Mother has accompanied the Church in the darkest and most difficult of days. Beginning at Pentecost and throughout the centuries including and up to our present day, Mary has never ceased to be a powerful advocate for us.
Our Lady’s message at La Salette, Fatima, and Akita could not be any clearer. Humanity needs to turn full-heartedly back to God trusting in His great mercy. Among our Lady’s 15 promises given to St. Dominic for those who say the rosary is: “I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.”
During the month of October, we have a unique opportunity to take up the practice of the family rosary. Let us heed our heavenly Mother’s injunction to pray in reparation for the sins of ourselves, our families, our country, our Church, and our world.
We are asking families to commit to praying one rosary together each day in the month of October. Let’s see how many families can commit to this challenge by signing the pledge sheet which is found at the doors of the church. If needed, instructions on praying the rosary are provided next to the pledge sheet.
What a wonderful way to start a new, or renew an old, tradition in your family.
Check in each weekend to see how many families are praying together. Our goal is to get 250 families in our parish to fulfill this Rosary pledge during October. We will schedule times throughout the month to say the rosary as a community throughout the St. Helen Campus. Together, with God’s grace and our Lady’s intercession, we can help change the course of our times.
Fill out this pledge form and place it in the box in front of Mary in the Church or bring it to the parish office.
You can also submit your pledge online. Just fill out the form below and press submit.
October is the month of the rosary. We are asking each family to pray the rosary together each day in October. Please fill out this pledge form.
