Pray the Rosary

The Rosary is a powerful form of meditation prayer using a set number of specific prayers.  These prayers, coming directly from the Bible, ask Mary to intercede for us to Jesus. For many, praying the Rosary is a daily must. We invite you to pray the Rosary at your convenience using the information below.  We even provide audio files that allow you to pray with someone and to help you learn its mysteries.

Fatima Prayer

Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are in most need of thy mercy.

Apostles’ Creed:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

Hail, Holy Queen

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!

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

The Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven; hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Closing Prayer

O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His Life, Death, and Resurrection
has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life;
grant, we beseech You, that, meditating on 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.

The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother!
to thee I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate! despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
