Legion of Mary
Congressional Rosary Rally 2018
The Rosary Congress of the USA in a nationwide effort to heal the Church in our country, and to enliven the faithful to new vigor and zeal for Christ, through Our Lady’s intercession.
Sunday, October 7 is the Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary, also known as Our Lady of Lepanto, in which a decisive battle was won in 1571.
This battle between the invading Turks and Catholic Italy was won by the miraculous intercession of Our Lady. Pope Pius V asked the whole Church to pray, and a decisive victory was had not by military might, but by her intercession. Now we who battle the forces of evil today in our Church ask for her intercession to free us from this evil.
Bishop Chad Zielinski has asked for this Congress to be a 3 day prayer renewal with perpetual adoration throughout the weekend beginning on the First Friday October 5, 7:30 am with Mass Ending October 7 at 5:00 pm with Mass.
The Legion of Mary has created a schedule in which I ask you to participate.
Yes, this is a challenge for us to accomplish, but with renewed vigor and drive in light of the many scandals and sins, not merely from outside the Church but from within the Church, including the hierarchy, I encourage each parish to fully participate in this event.
This Congress is to inspire prayer, penance, and repentance not only for ourselves, but for the scandals and sins within our community, country, and Catholic Church. As we know, Pope John Paul II taught that the New Evangelization begins with repentance which leads to healing. The purpose of this congress is not only to help individuals in our parish to heal, but to heal the wounds within our diocese and country, along with all the woundedness in our world.
This event will begin Friday, October 5 at 7:30 AM with Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral and Finish on Sunday Evening, October 7 at 5:00 PM the closing Mass.
Throughout the three days we will have exposition of the Holy Eucharist, the recitation of the Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Stations of the Cross, Morning Prayer, Evening Vespers, and silence.
Confessions will also be offered. The following is our schedule for the parishes.
