Dear Parishioners,

This Sunday is Rosary Sunday and October is the month of the Rosary. On Saturday 7 October we have Mass at 10.00 am to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary followed by Adoration, Rosary and refreshments.  

There are many promises attached to those who pray the Rosary. 


‘According to the tradition, Alanus de Rupe received 15 promises to those who pray the Rosary devoutly from the Blessed Virgin Mary herself through a private revelation.’ Visit the full list of fifteen promises HERE.


Here are seven of the promises. 

1. Those who faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary shall receive signal graces.

2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.

5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary shall not perish.

7. Those who have a true devotion to the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.

9. I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.

11. By the recitation of the Rosary you shall obtain all that you ask of me.

14. All who recite the Rosary are my beloved children and the brothers and sisters of my only Son, Jesus Christ.


Fr Behr.
