FOR OUR TELEVISION MASS VIEWERS: Please note that the video production equipment that generates the text that is seen on the screen (priest and lecture names, etc.) during the television Mass has failed. Unfortunately, it is an expensive piece of equipment and is being evaluated for repair or replacement. It is old and may not be repairable, in which case we would need to purchase new equipment and then train staff on the new technology before we would be able to place it in service. At this time, we do not have an estimated date for when this will be fixed. We thank you for your patience.

How to Pray the Rosary

Return to the TV Mass

The purpose of the Rosary is to help keep in memory certain principal events or mysteries in the history of our salvation, and to thank and praise God for them.  There are twenty mysteries reflected upon in the Rosary, and these are divided into the five JOYFUL MYSTERIES, the five LUMINOUS MYSTERIES, the five SORROWFUL MYSTERIES, and the five GLORIOUS MYSTERIES.

  1. Make the Sign of the Cross and say the "Apostles' Creed."

  2. Say the "Our Father."

  3. Say three "Hail Mary’s."

  4. Say the "Glory be to the Father."

  5. Announce the First Mystery; then say the "Our Father."

  6. Say ten "Hail Mary’s," while meditating on the Mystery.

  7. Say the "Glory be to the Father."

  8. Announce the Second Mystery; then say the "Our Father." Repeat 6 and 7 and continue with Third, Fourth and Fifth Mysteries in the same manner.

 After the Rosary:

HAIL, HOLY QUEEN, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.  O GOD, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

After each decade say the following prayer requested by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima: "O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of your mercy."

As suggested by Pope John Paul II the Joyful mysteries are said on Monday and Saturday, the Luminous on Thursday, the Sorrowful on Tuesday and Friday, and the Glorious on Wednesday and Sunday (with this exception: Sundays of Christmas season - The Joyful; Sundays of Lent - Sorrowful).
