Bishop Checchio has designated the week of October 6-13 as our Diocesan “Week of the Rosary.”

Bishop Checchio has designated the week of October 6-13 as our Diocesan “Week of the Rosary.” During this week, all people of the diocese, young and old alike, are encouraged to pray the Rosary daily, confident that her intercession directs us to her Son, Jesus, and our call to discipleship.  What better way to show our love for the Blessed Mother?

We begin our Week of the Rosary on October 6th which is Respect Life Sunday. This is a day when people from across the Diocese will join others from across the nation to take part in Life Chain, a peaceful, prayerful, public witness in support of the sanctity of all human life.  This is an opportunity for us to pray to the Queen of Mercy, rosary in hand, for all those babies lost to abortion and for all those in our society who are vulnerable.
October 7th marks the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. Here at Church of the Sacred Heart, the Rosary will be prayed at the Marian shrine after the 7 pm. On this day and the days that follow, let us meditate on the mysteries of our salvation as we ask her to set our hearts on fire as we prepare to be consecrated to her maternal care.
On Saturday October 12th, after the 9 am Mass, please join us outside to pray the International Rosary – the Rosary prayed in different languages – highlighting our unity in turning to our Blessed Mother.
Our Week of the Rosary will culminate on Sunday, October 13th, which is the 102nd anniversary of the Fatima Miracle of the Sun.  Let us pray in solidarity with people across the country who will gather for Rosary rallies coast to coast (https://rosarycoasttocoast.com/) begging for the return of our nation to God and to holiness.
Together, let us pray that an ever increasing number of faithful turn to Mary as a means of growing closer to our Lord.  Mother of the Americas and Star of the New Evangelization, pray for us!
