Greater New Orleans Rosary Congress

The Greater New Orleans Rosary Congress has been an annual event for 28 years, and this year will take place at Our Lady of Divine Providence in Metairie. The dates are October 6 thru October 12. It has drawn thousands of people from all over the area and beyond.

The church is open day and night for seven days. That is 168 hours, of continuous prayer and adoration of Jesus. Many spiritual groups, families, and individuals from local and adjoining areas cover the time. Prayer begins hourly, except when other activities are taking place. There is time for Mass, Adoration, Rosaries, processions, spiritual talks, periods of silence, and singing. The beauty and diversity of the Catholic Church is demonstrated in the many activities held during this week.

This year’s theme is the “The Pillars of Victory,” which comes from a dream of St. John Bosco where he saw the Holy Father in a terrible storm moor the Barque of St. Peter (an image of the Church) between two pillars, on top of one was the Eucharistic Host and on top of the other was Our Lady of the Rosary.

There is plenty room for all to come and pray together, here in the New Orleans – Metairie area. Those who come experience the proven power of these prayers.
