Pentecost Sunday May 31st– National Rosary Rally 9am to 9pm

Friday 22nd May 2020

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 9.00am to 9.00pm across Scotland England and Wales. 

Our Diocese has been asked to pray a Rosary Hour at 9 am and I warmly invite you to take part. 

Proposed timetable for across the Dioceses 

9.00am                        Arundel & Brighton, Northampton and HM Forces 

10.00am                      Birmingham, Nottingham & Ukrainian Eparchy 

11.00am                      Brentwood & Plymouth 

12 Noon                      Cardiff, Portsmouth & Dunkeld 

1.00pm                        Clifton, Salford & St. Andrews & Edinburgh 

2.00pm                        East Anglia, Shrewsbury, Aberdeen 

3.00pm                        Hallam, Southwark, Glasgow

7.00pm                        Liverpool, Middlesbrough & Motherwell 

8.00pm                        Menevia, Paisley & Syro Malabar Eparchy 

9.00pm                        Bishop John Keenan, as the May 2020 Rosary Mission Episcopal lead, will lead a final Rosary at 9pm to which all are invited. 

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. 

Come Holy Spirit & Renew the Face of the Earth 

Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us
