October – Month of the Rosary


It is traditional that during the month of October we turn to the gift of the Rosary as a School of Prayer. This form of prayer enables us all to meditate on the life of Christ: from his Annunciation to his ministry, through his suffering and death to his Resurrection, and the hope that comes to us as we follow where Mary has gone before us as a disciple of her son.

There are many aides to praying the Rosary, and there are groups within the parish and beyond who gather to pray this prayer together. This year Food for Faith, an online resource, is offering daily meditations on the gift of the Rosary. As well on the site there is access to a number of prayer and theological helps.

This includes a weekly discussion on the coming Sunday’s Scriptures.
