You are invited to the upcoming extraordinary prayer days called the Jericho Rosary. This event will take place in our parish on October 12-19.

The name Jericho Rosary refers to the event described in the biblical Book of Joshua.

Jericho is a plea to heaven – an uninterrupted, rotating vigil in front of the Blessed Sacrament for seven days, 24 hours a day, including a daily Holy Mass, a Rosary, and many other prayers. Some participants will stay in prayer for several hours, after which they will be replaced by others to return again to the Blessed Sacrament. Others will join in at least for some time, but someone will continuously pray, in a way that famous Jericho trumpets continued their sound until the finale God has foretold his people.

This year’s Jericho Rosary titled “The Way to Freedom” will be led by Fr. Szymon Mucha, Editor-in-Chief of the “Różaniec” (“Rosary”) monthly magazine. Father Mucha is a National Moderator of the Living Rosary.

We will bring to Him our prayers for our brothers and sisters, through the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, so the walls of our different enslavements can be shattered.

Let’s encourage each other to participate in these days of prayer as much as possible.
