As a part of the Building the Domestic Church initiative, we are happy to announce that the 5th Sunday Rosary Program will now be known as the Family Rosary program.
The Family Rosary Program, encourages councils to schedule rosary prayer services on any day of the week, at any time of the year, with the pastor’s permission. When planning a Rosary prayer service councils should personally invite each family of the parish, and offer each attending family a copy of Catholic Information Service’s A Scriptural Rosary for the Family (#319). Encourage families to read it and learn how their faith can be strengthened through a devotion to Our Lady, while praying at home regularly as a family.
Resources are available as part of the Family Rosary Program, including a Family Rosary Kit (#SR-Kit), which includes 25 finger rosaries, brochures on praying the rosary and copies of the Scriptural Rosary for the Family (#319), along with a promotional poster to help draw more parishioners to the event. Participants may also use their own rosaries, and Knights are encouraged to use the rosaries that they received during their First Degree.
