The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will host a virtual rosary event on Oct. 7, the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary. Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the USCCB, has called for this moment of prayer with the intention of uniting Catholics across the country at this time when there is much unrest and uncertainty.

Archbishop Gomez has invited several bishops, representing the various geographical regions of the United States, to pray a part of the rosary and it will premiere on the USCCB’s YouTube channel and Facebook page on Oct. 7 at 3 p.m.

The faithful are encouraged to join in this prayerful moment of unity for our country, to seek healing and to ask Our Lady, on her feast, to pray for us and help lead us to Jesus and encouraged to share where they are praying from, to post a photo of their rosary and to leave a prayer intention for our country.

The USCCB will be using the hashtag #RosaryForAmerica on its social media.
