National Rosary Rally

On Pentecost Sunday (31st May), there will be a National Rosary Rally from 9am to 9pm. Each Diocese has a designated Rosary Hour where people across the Diocese are invited to pray the Rosary either individually, in families or in online prayer groups. The Rosary Hour for the our Diocese is 3pm. It will be led by Fr Chris, Fr Stephen and Fr Callistus on St Marie’s Cathedral’s live-stream. At 9pm the Rosary Rally will end with a Rosary being led by Bishop John Keenan from St. Mirin’s Cathedral in Paisley.
