Pentecost Sunday May 31st – National Rosary Rally 9am to 9pm England, Wales, Scotland
Pope Francis is encouraging Catholics to pray the Rosary in their family homes during the month of May, especially when the Pandemic is making us aware of the value of our families and making it possible for us to pray together in lockdown at home. He encourages simple Rosaries and joining online Rosary initiatives to pray to Our Lady for deliverance from Covid-19, and he has composed two prayers for this intention. I invite you to join in an initiative that follows on the Pope’s request, the Pentecost Sunday National Rosary Rally, from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm across Scotland England and Wales. Our Diocese has been asked to pray at 5.00 pm and I warmly invite you to take part.
