First Saturday Rosary

Here at St Angela Merici it has been a practice for many years to pray the Rosary on the First Saturday of the month. A group of parishioners has gathered in the church after the 8 am Mass to pray the rosary with special intentions. When the rosary is finished, those who desire to do so can also stay for an additional few minutes to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the poor souls in Purgatory. In recent years our Knights of Columbus council has also designated this event as the venue for their monthly council rosary.
Additionally, those who are able to attend daily Mass can find a group of parishioners who stay after the daily 8AM Mass to pray the rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
All parishioners are invited to join in this beautiful prayer to our Lady. Just show up and join us. Praying the Rosary on the first Saturday of the month is a long-standing Catholic tradition based on our Lady’s revelation at Fatima.
Look, My daughter, at My Heart, surrounded with thorns with which
ungrateful men pierce Me at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Do you, at least, try to console Me and announce in My name that I promise to assist at the moment of death, with all the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep Me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to Me.”(Revelation of Our Lady of Fatima to Sr. Lucia)
