Rosary Rally
31st May 2020
2:00pm- 3:00pm
Bishop Alan Hopes asks us to pray the Rosary between 2.00 p.m. and 3.00 p.m. on Sunday 31st May.
The bishop writes:-


In his letter on the month of May, Pope Francis writes:

It is traditional in this month to pray the Rosary at home within the family. The restrictions of the pandemic have made us come to appreciate all the more this “family” aspect, also from a spiritual point of view. For this reason I want you to encourage everyone to rediscover the beauty OF PRAYING THE ROSARY AT HOME IN THIS MONTH OF MAY. This can be done as a group or individually; you can decide according to your own situations, making the most of both opportunities. The key to doing this is always simplicity and it is easy also on the internet to find good models of prayer to follow.

In response to pope Francis’s request there has been a Rosary Mission co-hosted by the London Rosary Shrine, Walsingham Basilica, Carfin Grotto and Rosary on the Coast. I invite you to take part in the culmination of this initiative – a Rosary Relay - on 31st May. Each Diocese has been asked to encourage everyone to pray the Rosary at a designated hour.

The Diocese of East Anglia has been asked to pray the Rosary between 2.00 p.m. and 3.00 p.m. on Sunday 31st May, Pentecost Sunday. I shall lead the Rosary at 2.00 p.m. which will be live streamed from St. John the Baptist’s cathedral, Norwich, that afternoon.

The focus for our prayer intentions is:

For faith, the sanctity of life and peace in the world;

For an end to the Covid-19 virus, for the sick and dying, for the dead and the grieving, for all health workers and carers, for those researching for an anti-virus;

For the protection of the common good and people’s economic livelihoods;

For the poor, homeless and destitute; and

That the Holy Spirit will preserve us from disaster and war.
