A 9-Month Novena for National Rosary Pilgrimage
January 9, 2024
Every good thing begins in prayer! And so the Dominican Friars of the Province St. Joseph are beginning a 9-month novena to pray for the success of the second annual Dominican Rosary Pilgrimage.
The novena starts on Saturday, January 27, 2024, and will be prayed every last Saturday of the month for nine months. The friars encourage people to visit rosarypilgrimage.org to get the novena prayer card sent to them and to view monthly video reflections on the Rosary by various friars from the province.
The first Rosary Pilgrimage, held last September at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., “was a resounding success,” said Fr. John Paul Kern, O.P., Executive Director of the Dominican Friars Foundation. “And we want this pilgrimage to grow every year, bringing people together to pray with the friars, and leading more souls to Jesus through Mary.”
Last year’s inaugural day-long pilgrimage brought 3,200 Catholics from across the country together for a day of praying the Rosary, great preaching by Dominican friars, opportunities for confession, and Holy Mass.
“There were many graces received that day and Our Lady wants to continue to give us these graces now, more than ever,” said Fr. John Paul. “So, begin praying with us now, every month, for the success of the Dominican Rosary pilgrimage, and then join us for the next Dominican Rosary Pilgrimage which will be held on September 28, 2024.”
