Call to Say the Rosary Everyday

Responding to The Blessed Mother’s call to say the Rosary everyday, Father Fleming leads the Rosary daily after the 8:00 a.m. Mass, as well as after the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Saturday and after the 8:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday. Everyone is welcome and the Graces received from the Rosary are definitely a Blessing that we, as Catholics can take advantage of. You can say the Rosary for a loved one, our country, or whatever you choose. The Blessed Mother is listening.
