Rosary Stronghold with the Holy Family:

Protecting our Families and the Family of Nations

May Rosary Mission 2021

Blessed News! The Holy Father has invited the entire Universal Church to participate in a great Rosary Mission to plead before the throne of God for an end to the coronavirus pandemic and for the healing for the wounds this pandemic has caused in the hearts of individuals, families and nations. 

 We are delighted to unite our May 2021 Rosary Stronghold Mission with the Rosary Mission of the Holy Father to the Universal Church.

Press Release from the Congregation for the promotion of the New Evangelisation

April 21st 2021

At the Heart of the Holy Father’s wish, the month of May will be dedicated to a marathon of prayer from the theme “From the whole Church the prayer to God went up incessantly. (Act 12,5)” The initiative will involve in a special way all the Sanctuaries of the World, so that they become promoters to the faithful, families and communities of the recitation of the Rosary to invoke the end of the Pandemic. Thirty representative Shrines, scattered all over the world, will guide the Marian prayer, which will be broadcast live on the official channels of the Holy See at 18.00 (Rome time) every evening.  Pope Francis will open this great prayer on May 1st and end it on May 31st.

We draw your attention to our May Rosary Mission 2021 where we invite once again the peoples of the Dioceses of Scotland, Wales and England to pray the Rosary for the following intentions:

1.    Protecting our families and the family of nations, especially in this Year of St Joseph

2.    A deepening of faith, hope and love and the protection of life

3.    Peace in the world

4.    Deliverance from Coronavirus; for those working for a cure; for those who have died; for those who are suffering and those who care for them.

We invite you to participate in this Rosary Mission in the light of the recent Rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary on March 29th 2020, the Consecration of Scotland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on September 3rd 2017 and in our ongoing intercession for Wales. 

 As the month of May goes forward we will CRY OUT with Pope Francis with ever-greater intensity before the Throne of GOD for our pleadings to be heard! Let us unite in prayer and create spiritually a Rosary Stronghold of protection with the Holy Family upon our Families, the Church, our Isles and the Family of Nations.
