Rosary

March, the very center of Lent for 2021, and what are we doing this year for Lent as we continue to wander in the desert of a virus with Jesus and our God?  Our desert now is white with snow, brown trees, cindered,salted, ashed streets; and gloomy skies that sometimes the sun manages to pierce.  Is the Son piercing through to you in this season of Lent?  We offer to each of you on Monday the First of March after the 8:30AM daily Mass and the First Saturday of March, the 6th at 3PM in Our Lady Chapel, the Rosary of Sorrow as we remember and reflect on our Savior’s walk to Calvary.  He who died for us, let us live for Him.  Let us pray as our Heavenly Mother, Mary asks for the healing and salvation of our country, our world, for peace everywhere.  During this year of St Joseph, we conclude our Rosary with the Litany of St Joseph. 

With this Rosary, a plenary indulgence is granted to the faithful who make a sacramental confession, receive Eucharistic Communion, and pray for the Pope’s intentions.


The Commission for Men of the Diocese of Allentown invites all families to participate in a Family Rosary via Zoom on every third Wednesday of the month starting at 7:00PM.  To find the link or to find out more information about the Commission for Men, please visit their new website - https://www.menaliveinchrist.org/


Throughout history, the recitation of the Rosary has obtained many miracles, especially in desperate times, whether during the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 or the Soviet invasion of Austria in 1955.

Our modern times are desperate indeed.  Our Faith and our families are under attack.  Yet now more than ever, we pray, and we hope!  We hope in God’s mercy, we hope in Our Lord and in Our Lady.  We hope in the power of the Holy Rosary.

Our Lady, Saints, and Popes have told us The Rosary is the most excellent form of prayer and the most efficacious means of attaining eternal life.  It is the remedy for all our evils and the root of all our blessings.  It is a ‘weapon’ for these times.  The United States Grace Force led by Father Richard Heilman, Queen of Peace Media, an organization of Catholic volunteers including priests and lay people; along with Catholic Action for faith and family led by Cardinal Raymond Burke promote praying the Rosary together as a force against the temptations of Satan. 

Our Parish Retreat team invites you to pray the Rosary with us the first of each month immediately after the daily Mass in unity with Cardinal Burke in his ‘Operation Storm Heaven’ movement.  Become a Rosary Warrior!
