47th Annual Arizona Rosary Celebration

08-03-2022Letter from the PastorFr. Don Kline, V.F.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Arizona Rosary Celebration is an annual state-wide event, held on the third weekend in October, with gatherings in five cities. In Phoenix, we are expecting between 4,000 and 6000 thousand Catholics will participate. The event is free, open to the public, and sponsored by the Knights of Columbus in collaboration with the Diocese of Phoenix, Legion of Mary, Catholic Daughters of the Americas, and other organizations.

Here are the details for the Phoenix event:
47th Annual Arizona Rosary Celebration
at the Phoenix Convention Center, South Building, Halls F & G 33 S. 3 St., Phoenix, AZ 85004
2:00-4:15p.m. Sunday, October 16
Doors open at noon for confession, adoration, exhibits

Here are three ways you can participate:

  1. As a parish representative. Send an email to frkline@saintbernadette.com with your name and contact information. A parish representative is vital to the success of the Arizona Rosary Celebration. The parish representative attends monthly planning meetings and serves as a liaison relaying information to our parish. More information is available on the Arizona Rosary Celebration website, www.AzRosary.net.
  2. Second, please support and encourage promotion of this event in your family and among your friends.
  3. Third, on October 16, join our bishop and thousands of faithful Catholics at the Arizona Rosary Celebration to pray to Mary under her title, "Our Lady, Help of Persecuted Christians."

This year, especially, we need the intercession of our Blessed Mother for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ around the world. Thank you for considering the position of parish representative, for supporting and promoting this amazing event, and for joining thousands of faithful Catholics as we honor Our Lady.
