The Rosary Society is an organization for women of St. Mary’s Parish who are dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Grounded in love for Our Blessed Mother, our primary purpose is to promote awareness and devotion to the Rosary.
Our members are, first and foremost, women of prayer, who enjoy spiritual benefits from being united in fraternal charity with Rosary associations worldwide through the prayer of the Holy Rosary. We strive to comply with Pope Leo XIII’s apostolic constitution on the Most Holy Rosary as stated in our by-laws.
Our women are confident in the knowledge that when we pray the Rosary with Mary, she intercedes for us before Our Father and before her Son, Jesus. In pondering the richness of the Gospel stories contained in the Rosary, our hearts, minds, and souls begin to understand God’s will in the joys and sorrows of our own lives. We want to make everyone aware of the special graces the prayer of Our Lady’s Rosary can bring.
The Rosary Society provides spiritual and social activities for its members and also the parish family. Our many events offer opportunities for prayer, friendship and building community. In working to produce these events, Rosary members discover the blessings of making spiritual friends. Unlike other friendships, women find companions who share spiritual help and support for one another on the journey of life.
Finally, the Rosary Society supports the parish by hosting one fundraiser - our annual Christmas Dinner in December. The proceeds from this event, as well as any funds leftover after organizational expenses, are given in charity to those in the parish family whose needs may be otherwise unmet.
