Pray the Rosary with Pope Francis in May

Click Here for the New Rosary Prayers

Pope Francis is encouraging us all to increase our devotion to our Blessed Mother and draw together as a spiritual family during the month of May. He has suggested that we pray the Rosary with two additional prayers asking for Mary’s intercession. At Our Lady of the Lake, we will follow the pope’s lead and focus on Marian devotion during May. Everyone is invited to pray along!

OLL Rosary on Facebook Live

Fr. Mike or an OLL staff member will lead the Rosary on Facebook Live each Friday at noon in the presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. You don’t need a Facebook account to pray along—just go to the OLL Facebook page and join in! We will be praying the two prayers that Pope Francis has suggested for after the Rosary.

Reconsecrating Our Nation to Mary

On the first day of May, the Catholic bishops and faithful of the United States reconsecrated our nation to Mary, Mother of the Church. We joined the bishops and faithful in Canada as they consecrated their country to Mary under the same title. This reconsecration has given the Church the occasion to pray for our Lady’s continued protection of the vulnerable, healing of the unwell, and wisdom for those who work to cure COVID-19.

Celebrating Mary at Home

Loyola Press has a variety of Marian resources and ideas for home devotions, including a May Crowning at home and tips for praying the Rosary as a family .
