One Father Prayed One Rosary in One Home and a Ministry was Founded

For 75 years, we've been praying with families and it all began because Patrick Peyton's father brought his family together to pray the Rosary each evening in their humble home. Simple as that! Just think about it. Any family can gather and pray together and who knows what amazing things may come from it.

We at Family Rosary are ever so grateful Father Peyton's family prayed together and that devotion to family prayer was instilled in Father Peyton. Now it can be part of your family's tradition so you can fulfill the vision that ... The Family That Prays Together Stays Together ... the slogan created by Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., so many years ago.
