Coronavirus is affecting the most vulnerable people in all societies. Just as the impacts of the virus are being felt at unprecedented levels here in the UK, we are extremely concerned about the impact that the virus will have on vulnerable and marginalised communities in developing countries with healthcare systems much more fragile than our own. We remem-ber that we are one global family, united in this struggle. Now is the time for the world to unite in love and compassion. In order to continue protecting and improving the lives of those in poor communities, your prayers, voices and gifts are needed now, more than ever.

What Our Lady of the Rosary did in Lepanto in 1571 she will do for us if we have the faith to believe! Do we … ??

Our Lady of the Rosary pray for us and intercede mightily with your Divine Son Jesus.

Our Lady help of Christians come to our aid!

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.  This is to be led in the form of a Rosary relay Rally where the Dioceses designated in their Rosary Hour encourage the peoples across their Diocese to pray the Rosary either, individually, in families, as online prayer groups, parish groups, and where possible led online by their parish priests and Bishop.

It does not matter what time during the specified hour that the Rosary is prayed.

Then on the hour the next Dioceses take up the Rosary relay Rally and so on until 9pm.

At 9pm the Rosary Rally will end with a Rosary being led by Bishop John Keenan from St. Mirin’s Cathedral in Paisley which you can access online via Bishop John Keenan facebook page.

Co-hosted by Rosary on the Coast, London Rosary Shrine, Carfin Grotto, Basilica of Our Lady of Walsingham & Diocese of Menevia Divine Mercy Shrine

Please remember in your prayers for the well being of our religious Sisters and, priests of the Diocese, and we specially pray for our parishioners who are sick, housebound, in hospitals, hospices and care homes.
