Read: Diocese of Lansing Rosary Congress 2022 | Begins today!

A record number of parishes are participating in this year’s Diocese of Lansing Rosary Congress which begins this evening and will run through until Saturday, October 15. Ave Maria!

“There are few more beautiful ways to prayerfully meditate upon the life of Jesus Christ than through the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary,” said Bishop Earl Boyea, “Hence, I would heartily encourage people to participate in this year’s Rosary Congress across the Diocese of Lansing.”

A Rosary Congress is the continual praying of the Holy Rosary in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament for seven days and nights in a particular parish or diocese with the aim of wrapping our country, our state, our diocese, and our family within the protective mantle of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Diocese of Lansing Rosary Congress is now into its third year. Initially, eight parishes participated. Last year that number had grown to 20 parishes. This year 40 parishes are taking part plus one high school.

The Rosary Congress began in Poland in 1979, when the Polish people prayed through Mary’s intercession for the coming of Pope Saint John Paul II to his beloved homeland. The First National Rosary Congress in the United States was held in Washington, D.C., in 1988, at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
