If you have any questions let me know.

Public Rosary for Marriage

posted Feb 5, 2020, 11:00 AM by Michael Kahny

Marriage is linked to stability and peace for individuals and for society, but it is an endangered species with an uncertain future. The very institution of marriage needs our prayers. The vitality of future generations of the church needs our prayers.

The rosary is the perfect prayer for these intentions.
