Global Rosary Relay for Priests

Children's Rosary to Participate in this Years 
Global Rosary Relay for Priests

Several months ago the Children’s Rosary received a beautiful invitation from Marion Mulhall the founder of Worldpriest.  This organization seeks to support and promote the sanctification of priests.  The invitation was to participate in this year’s Global Rosary Relay for Priests. The Global Rosary Relay is held on June 12th 2015 which is the World Day of Prayer for Priests and the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Beginning in Siberia every 15 to 30 minutes a Rosary is led at a different shrine for the sanctification of priests. Over 80 shrines will be participating from 46 countries.  Pope Francis has even taken a time slot and will be praying as well in the Vatican. He has also granted an Apostolic Blessing to those that participate in the Global Rosary Relay that day.

This year members of the Children’s Rosary have been asked to participate in this day of prayer for priests by unifying prayers with those being said in the shrines across the globe.  As rosaries will be said in succession one after the other, sometimes with beautiful overlap, the children can review the schedule and choose when they would like to join in with prayer.  Some of our Children’s Rosary groups such as those at St. Thomas Becket Parish in Cheshire Connecticut USA and St. Augustine Parish Lagos Nigeria will be meeting as a group and unifying prayers with the Shrines.  Indeed it is our hope that children will be an integral part of this years Global Rosary Relay for Priests.  Some of the members of the Children’s Rosary have even written about their enthusiasm to be a part of something so far reaching which helps their shepherds.

“There are really no words to describe it! Amazing. Great!” (Marianne member of the Children’s Rosary Waterbury, Connecticut USA age 6)

“It is an honor to be asked to pray for our priests. I want to thank all priests for giving their lives to serve God and His Church.” (Grace Angel member of the Children’s Rosary Naples, Florida USA age 12)

We would like to humbly thank Marion Mulhall for her beautiful invitation to the Children’s Rosary to participate in this years Global Rosary Relay for Priests.  More information is available about the upcoming Global Rosary Relay: HERE.
