The annual rosary rally for students from schools in the Diocese of Wilmington takes on a new look this year as the coronavirus pandemic prevents the hundreds of children from gathering as usual at the Shrine of Our Lady Queen of Peace on the grounds of Holy Spirit Parish in New Castle.
The rally takes place virtually today, Oct. 7, the feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. Each school has the opportunity to pray the rosary with Bishop Malooly at a time of its choosing as the prayer service is pre-recorded. Parishioners are invited to join students, teachers and staff in prayer on the diocesan YouTube channel beginning Oct. 7. The channel is located at www.youtube.com/DioceseofWilm.
The rosary with the bishop and the students also will be presented on the Oct. 10 episode of the Catholic Forum radio program and podcast. Catholic Forum airs on Relevant Radio 640 each Saturday at 1:30 p.m. It can be heard online at www.cdow.org/CatholicForum and on Apple, Spotify and iHeart Radio.
