National Rosary Rally - Washington DC
The 54 day Novena for Our Nation concludes with the National Rosary Rally at the US Capitol on the October 7 Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary; headlined by speakers comprised of nationally known Catholic clergy and laypeople.
The National Rosary Rally takes place in Upper State Park, 200 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001. All four Rosaries will be prayed along with intentions which include: respect for life at all stages of development; the sanctity of marriage and families; upholding constitutionally protected religious freedom; and the return of our nation to God and Holiness.
Fr. Heilman clarifies: “Importantly, this is not intended to be a political event. Our hope is to influence the direction of our country through prayer”.
“I wholeheartedly endorse the Novena for Our Nation and the Rosary Rally on October 7 next I urge as many as are able to participate in these great spiritual works for the sake of our entire nation.”
Cardinal Raymond Burke
“This 54 Day Novena for Our Nation and National Rosary Rally come at a critical and most serious time of crisis in our country. I cannot think of a more powerful response on the part of Catholics than to pray, fast and come together for the conversion of our nation.”
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, Priests for Life
“I call this our Nineveh moment. The fact of the matter is we need a conversion of our culture, but more specifically our elected officials or leadership. This 54 day Novena and the Rosary Rally are all part of the effort we need to end preborn child killing and attacks on marriage and the family. We’re not trying to invent a new way in approaching God but listening and doing it the way he wants us to come to him. He wants us to come to him through our Blessed Mother, through this Rosary he’s given us, in all docility and piety and to do it his way.”
Fr. Richard Heilman, President of the Holy League
