October is the month of the Rosary and this year, more than ever, Catholics are being encouraged to pray for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary to bring a strengthening of faith to our lands in the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Several Catholic churches and cathedrals across England and Wales are taking part in a national rosary mission titled ‘Rosary Whirlwind British Isles’. Our Lady’s Shrine in Walsingham, the national shrine, is one of the co-hosts.
You can pray the rosary online every evening in October at 8pm – broadcast live by a different Marian Shrine, cathedral or parish. Visit Walsingham’s website for further details:
The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales are leading from the front by taking part in a unique 12-hour prayer event on All Hallows Eve, 31 October, called the ‘National Rosary Relay Rally’.
From 9am to 9pm, many of our bishops are praying a Rosary Holy Hour for their dioceses – either from their Cathedrals or private chapels.
Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.
