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”. Pope Francis says, “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.”

Our Parish Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary falls on 7th October. We encourage you to pray the Rosary during this month.

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
