Seven Sorrows Rosary
Our Blessed Mother Mary
The month of May is the "month which the piety of the faithful has especially dedicated to Our Blessed Lady".
Please pray for peace and healing around the world. For the lost, the displaced, the infirmed, and the innocent, especially those who have died due to senseless violence.
Also, please continue to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory in your prayer intentions.
(Those who have died in grace, yet who failed in this life to make satisfaction for all of their sins)
Praying your rosary will help to release these souls and send them into Heaven!

The mission of our ministry is to foster devotion to the Mother of God under the title of Our Sorrowful Mother.
We aim to encourage the faithful to meditate on Her Seven Sorrows, particularly by praying the Rosary of Our Lady of Sorrows. It is our intention:
To distribute these rosaries at no charge to all who request them;
To make them aware of Her seven sorrows;
To instruct them how to recite the rosary and meditate on Her sorrows.
