Living Faith Daily Catholic Devotions

Rosary on the Coast of the British Isles:
This is a day of Pilgrimage and Prayer for the re-flourishing of our Faith, for the grace to build a culture of Life and for true Peace to reign in the hearts of all peoples and nations. The inspiration for this is the faithful of Poland and Ireland who have responded to what they sense as a movement of the Holy Spirit to gather around the coasts of their nations and pray to Jesus, the Divine Mercy, for a renewal of faith and respect for human life through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary. Having witnessed this, a number of the lay faithful in England, Scotland and Wales have felt the same inspiration and urge to respond.
A National day has been organised for Sunday 29th April 2018 at 3pm,
Fifth Sunday of Easter. For more information and to register please visit: www.rosaryonthecoast.co.uk
