Month of Mary

May is the month of Mary when the Catholic church offers special prayers and devotion to Mary, the Mother of God. During the month, special devotions and prayers are done, one being the Rosary. This year, during May, Pope Francis, is asking for 2 special prayers to be added to your Rosary during this time as the world battles the Corona Virus.

Pope Francis is encouraging the faithful to rediscover the “family” aspect of the Rosary.
