Annual Global Rosary Relay for Priests

Rosary Relay for Priests
June 15th | 5:00 PM
Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

The Annual Global Rosary Relay idea is a simple one: in that each of the 60 participating shrines prays a particular mystery of the Rosary at a particular half hour on the day in thanksgiving to God for our priests and to implore the protection and loving care of Our Lady, Mother of all priests, for all her priestly sons. With the coming of midnight on the 15th June 2012, the entire world, by then, will have been encircled in prayer for our priests on this The Annual Rosary Relay Day.

It was the great Irish priest Fr. Patrick Peyton who never tired of saying that: 'The Family that prays together stays together.' As the family of the Church, you are invited to join our prayers to the prayers of millions throughout the world on 15th June 2012. It is an opportunity for us to raise our hearts to God for all priests in the exercise of their ministry; that they will be blessed, through our prayers, with God's grace for their priesthood; that in this worldwide communion of prayer for them, they may experience our gratitude and support; and finally that they will persevere in unity with Christ and his Church and shepherd the Lord's flock to the safe pastures of his Kingdom.

*We invite you to join us at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels to kick off the Rosary Relay at 5:00 PM with the Joyful Mystery, where we will pray that every priest may: hear and live God's word; bear Christ to others; proclaim Jesus as Saviour and Lord; possess deep faith in the Sacraments; We pray for our own bishop(s), priests and deacons.
