Altar Rosary Society

Altar Rosary SocietyOur Lady of the Rosary

 

The mission of the Society is to praise and honor the Blessed Virgin Mother and to secure her patronage by the recitation of the rosary.

The obligation each week is to recite and meditate on the 20 mysteries of the Rosary, in public or privately.  In our parish society, we ask for one extra Hail Mary a day for our members.  We concern ourselves with anything connected with the altar.  

HOW TO PRAY THE ROSARY: http://www.newadvent.org/images/rosary.pdf
