May - The Month of Mary

During the month of May we focus on both Mary and her role in our church as well as use this month to pray to her. Her prayer, The Hail Mary, leads us to direct our focus on the spiritual tool for meditation that is the rosary.

If you are interested in learning more about how to pray the rosary, please explore this How to Pray the Rosary infographic. The free app Laudate is a simple, yet spectacular, resource you may wish to explore.

Pope Francis asks Catholics to pray a rosary for peace in Ukraine every day during the month of May.

Whether you pray the rosary or simply pray from your heart, God hears all prayers.
