The goal of Worldpriest, the organisers, is to have millions of Hail Mary’s prayed as a gift to Our Lady for her most beloved priests. Last year, over 3000 prayer locations took part worldwide.
The Worldpriest, Annual Global Rosary Relay for the Sanctification of Priests idea is a simple one. Each of the participating prayer locations worldwide prays an allocated mystery of the Rosary at a set time on this special day of prayer which is an actual relay in real time prayed in thanksgiving to God for our priests and to implore the protection and loving care of Our Lady, Mother of all priests, for all her priestly sons. With the coming of midnight on this day 11 June 2021, the entire world, by then, will have been encircled in prayer once again for our priests on this The Annual Global Rosary Relay Day.
Fr Richard Gibbons, PP and Rector of Knock Shrine will lead the Rosary at 7pm.
The Rosary will be streamed live on our website www.knockshrine.ie/watch and also on our Facebook page @KnockShrine.
