Faith is the most important gift we can give our children. This October, we invite families to join us in an experience of faith and prayer where we’ll enter into the “School of Mary”—the Rosary—and learn from her who Jesus is and who we are. Through videos, artwork, eBooks, personal testimonies, and more, we’ll highlight the importance of family Rosary prayer and help your family to enter more deeply into this journey of faith.

Facts About the Rosary

Share Your Thoughts

Praying the Rosary

Don't worry about how "well" you pray the Rosary. Just pray it. As with anything new, you may stumble at first but it will soon become natural and you'll begin to miss it if you skip it! Give the Rosary a try and pray one decade today!

Rosary Facts

There are four sets of Mysteries: Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious. The Mysteries tell the story of Christ's life through his Mother Mary's eyes.

Keep it Simple and Manageable

Praying the Rosary doesn't have to happen in a quiet chapel before Mass. You can pray it with your family in the car, around the dinner table, or right before bed. We know you're busy, so let prayer naturally fit into your daily schedule.

Daily Mysteries

Each day of the week is assigned a set of Mysteries to pray that day. Some people pray the Joyful on Monday and Saturday, the Luminous on Thursday, the Sorrowful on Tuesday and Friday, and the Glorious on Wednesday and Sunday. But, you can pray them any day you wish. Whatever works best for you and your family.
