Archdiocese of Hartford 2018 Traveling Rosary Congress
The Archdiocese of Hartford is hosting a Traveling Rosary Congress during October, the month of the Most Holy Rosary. It will be held from Saturday, October 6, 2018 through Friday, October 12, 2018.
A Traveling Rosary Congress is seven days of around-the-clock Eucharistic Adoration and Hourly Rosary with each day hosted at a different site in the archdiocese.
The purpose of this Rosary Congress is to recall the message of Our Lady to the three shepherd children in Portugal in 1917, when she appeared to them to request that the faithful pray the Rosary every day, make reparation to her Immaculate Heart for the sins committed against her Son, and pray and make sacrifices for the conversion of sinners. We wish to respond now to Our Lady of Fatima’s call to conversion, consecration and prayer.
During this 7-day period of the Traveling Rosary Congress, churches in the Archdiocese of Hartford will offer Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with the Rosary and the Chaplet of Mercy prayed vocally at the beginning of each hour, followed by silent prayer for the remainder of the hour.
Please consider participating in this special event as we pray in reparation for our families, our archdiocese, our country, and our world, by volunteering to cover one of the hours of adoration, or simply stop in to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for any length of time at any of the locations. Attend as an individual, take your family, or if you are part of a parish group, consider volunteering as a group for an hour or more.
