People ask us how the Worldpriest Global Rosary Relay for the Sanctification of Priests works so efficiently … all within a single day. In fact the prayer event is quite a simple concept, born from the inspiration of twenty countries and twenty mysteries a decade ago.
In this our tenth anniversary year, the prayer event starts with the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary in Soul, South Korea, before being spiritually sent to Our Lady of Magadan in Russia, and then travelling all over the world to every continent, every country and every parish, finishing at Hermosillo, Sonora State in Mexico at the Shrine of the Divine Child Jesus, praying the Luminous Mysteries.
If your church is not currently listed on the Worldpriest website just join in prayer with the nearest prayer location to you by visiting the link here to check locations: https://www.worldpriest.com/participating-shrine-list/. If you do not have internet access tell you friends to spread the word or we suggest you join with an elderly person or someone living alone or a person who may be unwell and unable to travel to a prayer location and pray together with that person. You might also consider participating from your home with your family, or from your workplace. Participation then becomes almost like prayer as you go!
Our goal is to have an amazing one billion Hail Marys prayed on 28 June, but this goal can only be reached through every support from you personally and all other people praying at the 250 approx prayer locations worldwide.
Please let us know if you are going to participate and where you are located by pledging your rosary if not already registered online at the following: email@example.com
We have many new participating prayer locations this year but to mention just one The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal C.F.R. who are joining the Global Rosary Relay for the first time at their community church Newburg, New York, praying the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary at 15.30 local time join prayerfully with the Friars from where ever you may be located worldwide.

How you can help us to promote the relay at your prayer location
Here are some ways you can help us to maximise the promotion of the Worldpriest Worldwide Rosary Relay:
• By organising a global, national or local television or radio broadcast – in each case providing us with the television or radio station link to include in our broadcast schedule.
• Webcam, YouTube and Facebook presentations will also require a link to place on our broadcast schedule.
• A short write-up afterwards about how your prayer location participated would be greatly welcomed and would allow Worldpriest to produce a full overview news story in thanksgiving for a great day of prayer as we actively prepare for 16 June 2020 the next Global Rosary Relay day.
After 28 June we will place all of the above on the media hub of our website, so please send everything to email@example.com
