Parishes called to celebrate Rosary Sunday

Archbishop Eamon Martin, Coadjutor Archbishop of Armagh, has invited parishes to take part in Rosary Sunday for the intention of the ‘family’.

Rosary Sunday, an initiative from the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference, will be celebrated in parishes across Ireland on Sunday, October 5, the day on which the Church celebrates the ‘Day for Life 2014’.  

It is the Sunday closest to the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary and it coincides with the 60th anniversary of the Rosary Rally of Fr Peyton and the Marian Year of 1954.

“Rosary Sunday is an invitation to people in parishes, in homes, and in religious congregations to pray the Rosary for the intention of the ‘Family’,” Archbishop Martin said, “The once-common tradition of the family Rosary links very well with the theme of the Synod on the Family in Rome which takes place from October 5–19.”
