Praying the Rosary: Sundays in Lent

On Sundays during Lent, 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 us in this ancient method of pondering the mysteries of Christ’s life in anticipation of the Feast of the Resurrection. During Lent, the focus will be on the Sorrowful Mysteries. 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 form of this hymn can be found in the Hymnal 1982, hymn #277. Sundays in Lent
