Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish To Host Rosary Relay

DANBURY—Please join Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Danbury in this tenth year of the Annual Global Rosary Relay for a Day of Adoration for the Sanctification of Priests on Friday, June 28, 2019.

Worldpriest was established by a group of lay people to support various aspects of the priestly ministry. Also, Worldpriest seeks to “unite priests and laity so that everyone can come into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.”

The Rosary Relay is a world-wide event. Shrines and churches offer their rosaries at specific times so that prayers are offered for priests throughout the day.

Adoration that day, the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, will begin at 8:30 am at Sacred Heart Parish, in the church, following Mass at 8 am and the recitation of the rosary. Adoration will continue until 8 pm.

In the evening, at 7 pm, there will be a rosary and prayers offered for priests.

Also, the Sacred Heart of Jesus Secular Franciscan Fraternity hosts a Holy Hour for Priests every fourth Saturday at 9 am at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish. Everyone is invited.

 Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish is located at the corner of Cottage and Stone Streets in Danbury.
