Honoring the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary
A photo essay of Rosary Sunday! It was a beautiful day and we had a good number of people! Our chapel is big so there is plenty of room for a lot more! We hope you'll make plans to come for our May Pilgrimage!
Sr. Mary Veronica is all smiles as she holds a pan of rose petals that will be used on the sedia that holds the statue of our Lady of Fatima that is carried in procession.
Sr. Margaret takes a break from preparing 15 dozen roses. Obviously, Sr. Mary Magdalene is more experienced!
Fortified with hot chocolate (a bribe of the novice mistress?) Sr. Margaret is back to work!
Fr. Gregory Solomone, OP, our new chaplain, leads the congregation in praying the rosary. You can see the statues of our Lady in the background. The rest of the year she is enthroned in our refectory.
During the Rosary the pilgrims process around the chapel with the banner of our Lady of the Rosary (blessed by Pope Pius XII during the 1950 Marian Year) and the statue of our Lady. Our ever-faithful Rich Sofie leads the way.
Fr. Peter Stravinskas gave a wonderful talk on devotion to our Lady and the power of the Rosary.
The Rosary Pilgrimages ends with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and a rousing Holy God We Praise Thy Name.
Fr. Peter poses for posterity with (L-R) Sr. Maria of the Cross, Sr. Mary Catharine and Sr. Denise Marie.
