To Jesus Through Mary Ministry is looking for Rosary prayer leaders
Our Blessed Mother tells us, “
All who recite the Rosary are my children, and siblings of my only son Jesus Christ.”
This devotional prayer is unique in that we can recite the rosary prayers as a group, but at the same time privately mediate on the Mysteries of Christ’s life death and resurrection; on those same Mysteries rooted in the Bible and mirrored in the Mass; those Mysteries that tell the story of our salvation. If you can lead a Rosary prayer contact Elsie Coyne at
or Elaine Martinez at
to make an offering via our safe, secure and convenient online giving program.
