Honor our Mother Mary in May--Pray the Rosary!
Do you think of the Rosary as a tool for spreading the good news of Jesus? Pope Paul VI called the Rosary "the school of the Gospels"!
Pope John Paul II claimed the Rosary has "all the depth of the Gospel message in its entirety..." and " with the Rosary, the Christian people sits at the school of Mary and is led to contemplate the beauty on the face of Christ and to experience the depths of his love. Through the Rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer".
St. Jude of the Lake Rosary Makers invite you to pray for all who will receive a Rosary from our parish. We have a goal of making and distributing 6000 Rosaries locally and worldwide this year! Help our ministry by picking up a Rosary at one of the church entrances; please take a few to share with others! If you would like to obtain Rosaries for a larger number of people, please check with the church office.
You can learn to make Rosaries at our next Rosary Ministry potluck on Thursday, July 14, 6-8 p.m. at the Ark! Your financial contributions for supplies and shipping also aid our mission! Donations by cash or check can be placed in the offering baskets at Mass, please indicate "for Rosary Ministry".
One of the promises given by Mary to St. Dominic was that "all who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities." Please join Pope Francis and encourage others to pray the Rosary for evangelization and peace. Mary and Joseph, pray for us! St. Jude, patron of hopeless or desperate causes, pray for us!
