Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Praying the Rosary: Sundays in Advent

Praying the Rosary: Beginning on Sunday, 3 December, as part of our Advent observance, on the first three Sundays of Advent, a group of Brothers will be praying the rosary in the Lady Chapel beginning at 3:00 PM, and concluding in time for Evening Prayer. You are most welcome to join the Brothers in this ancient method of pondering the mysteries of Christ’s life, in anticipation of the Feast of the Incarnation. Rosaries, and simple instructions on how to use this form of prayer, will be available. In case you haven’t looked at them recently, the windows in the Lady Chapel depict the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries of the rosary. One of the members of our community, Father Roland Palmer SSJE wrote a hymn, Sing of Mary, which is a meditation on the Rosary. An abbreviated for of this hymn can be found in the Hymnal 1982, hymn #277.
