Month of the Rosary

October is known as the month of the Rosary. In one of her apparitions to the children of Fatima in 1917, Our Lady announced “I am the Lady of the Rosary”. On 7th October, our Parish Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, Pope Francis said, "I invite everyone to rediscover, especially during this month of October, the beauty of the prayer of the rosary, which has nourished the faith of the Christian people through the centuries."

Sadly, we are not able to gather together for now, due to the pandemic, but this month we encourage you to pray the Rosary.

Today’s Mass Readings .
Dear Guardian Angel, go for me to the church, there kneel down at Mass for me. At the Offertory, take me to God and offer Him my service: What I am, what I have, offer as my gift. At the Consecration, with your seraphic strength, adore my Saviour truly present, praying for those who have loved me, for those who have offended me, and for those now deceased, that the blood of Jesus may purify them all. During Holy Communion bring me the Body and Blood of Jesus uniting Him with me in spirit, so that my heart may become His dwelling place. Plead with Him, that through His sacrifice all people throughout the world may be saved. When the Mass ends, bring home to me and to every home, the Lord’s blessing. Amen.
