The word rosary comes from Latin and means a garland of roses, the rose being one of the flowers used to symbolize the Virgin Mary. If you were to ask what object is most emblematic of Catholics, people would probably say, "The rosary, of course." We’re familiar with the images: the silently moving lips of the old woman fingering her beads; the over sized rosary hanging from the waist of the wimpled nun; more recently, the merely decorative rosary hanging from the rear view mirror.
After Vatican II the rosary fell into relative disuse. The same is true for Marian devotions as a whole. But in recent years the rosary has made a comeback, and not just among Catholics. Many Protestants now say the rosary, recognizing it as a truly biblical form of prayer—after all, the prayers that comprise it come mainly from the Bible.
The rosary is a devotion in honor of the Virgin Mary. It consists of a set number of specific prayers. First are the introductory prayers: one Apostles’ Creed (Credo), one Our Father (the Pater Noster or the Lord’s Prayer), three Hail Mary’s (Ave’s),
one Glory Be (Gloria Patri).
Enter the name of the person(s) you would like to have prayed for on the Prayer Request form on the left. Our prayer team along with the Carmelite Nuns will pray for you.

The Divine Mercy chaplet is a prayer devotion said on standard rosary beads that is believed to have been given by Christ to St. Faustina Kowalska (1905–38) as a means of beseeching God’s mercy on sinners. St. Faustina recorded the visions she had of Christ and the Blessed Virgin in a diary entitled Divine Mercy in My Soul.
