Parish Rosary Bouquet||As a way of renewing our families, parish, diocese and the world through prayer, you are invited to take part in the Good Shepherd Rosary Bouquet Program. Through it, we hope to gather a spiritual bouquet of Rosaries for Jesus and Mary. |
A vase will be placed in the Church Narthex near the statue of Mary along with a smaller bowl of beads. (Hand sanitizer will also be on the table.) Each bead placed into the vase will represent one Rosary that has been prayed by someone at Church of the Good Shepherd—and as the vase fills up, we will be able to see this spiritual bouquet of Rosaries grow!
The program will work this way:
- Each time you pray a Rosary—at home, at Church, at work, while driving, etc.—we invite you to put one bead in the vase for each Rosary prayed.
- If you pray the Rosary together with others, each person can add a bead for each Rosary prayed.
- If you cannot come to the Church to add beads yourself, please call Denise and Jim Pencola at (724) 726-5315 to let them know how many beads to add to the vase.
