Why a National Rosary for the Family?

This initiative is part of the local celebrations of the 10th World Meeting of Families to be held in Rome from June 22 to 26, 2022, which coincides with the closing of the Year of the Family Amoris Laetitia. The virtual National Rosary for the Family will be an opportunity to gather in prayer as well as to witness other faith-filled families across the country.

What is the format of the National Rosary and how can I participate?

The National Rosary will be conducted via Zoom on Sunday, June 19, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. EDT as a Webinar. In order to participate, families must pre-register on Zoom by clicking here.

Who can participate in the Rosary on June 19?

Everyone is invited. We especially encourage families, grandparents, couples, children – and even better if you pray alongside multiple generations. As Pope Francis points out, it is the privilege of the family to pray, share, exchange and reflect as a family in faith with other families.
