A hundred basilicas around the world will join in a global rosary for priests

2016-05-21

Coinciding with the feast of the Sacred Heart, a Rosary Relay is scheduled for Friday, June 3 in more than 100 shrines throughout the world. One of the many recitations of the rosary will be held in St. Peter's Square at 6 p.m. Rome time.

This year marks the 11th annual Rosary Relay, which was started by Worldpriest, an organization that upholds the priesthood and strives to share its gift with the world. 

The Annual Rosary Relay Day has the apostolic blessing of Pope Francis and is the record-holder for the most people in the world praying the same prayer for the same purpose, on the same day.

All are invited to attend and pray for this petition at the parish closest to them. For a complete list of participants, or to be a participant yourself, go to worldpriest.com.
