Pentecost Sunday – National Rosary Rally

Pentecost Sunday – May 31st 2020

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.  You are invited to join in an initiative that follows from the Pope’s request, the Pentecost Sunday National Rosary Rally, from 9.00am to 9.00pm across England, Wales and Scotland.
