Oregon to take part in 'rosary relay' for priests
The Annual Global Rosary Relay for Priests is on the Feast of The Sacred Heart, Friday June 7, across the globe. It's a time set aside for the church to pray for priests and ask Mary to protect them. KBVM, 88.3 FM, will broadcast a rosary at 11 a.m. that day. In addition, the Grotto in Portland will have a rosary at 11:30 a.m. that day.
June 7 is World Priest Day, established by Pope John Paul. In the rosary relay, people in various time zones pray the Rosary at a particular half hour on the day. The idea is that the globe be encircled in prayer for our priests.
U.S. Cardinal Raymond Burke will join in praying the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary from the Vatican in union with the relay.
