Rosary Congress 2023

The Blessed Mother has consistently told visionaries that the key to peace in the world is to pray the rosary every day. Countless saints and popes down the centuries have attested to the power of both Eucharistic Adoration and the Rosary. This is a powerful and effective spiritual approach to the world’s problems.

This Rosary Congress is for reparation, life and peace, healing, renewal, families, our country, evangelization and vocations. Through the heart and the school of Mary, the Rosary Congress throughout the Archdiocese will provide an invitation for many to experience the power of encountering Jesus in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, some for the very first time.

We will follow many of the guidelines offered at which shares the history of this “movement of prayer” in Eastern Europe, its spread to the United States and its fruitfulness in combating many evils of the day.
