Perpetual Holy Rosary to be recited with prayers for election

LEWISTON — The month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary and, in celebration, many Maine parishes have held Rosary gatherings to honor the Blessed Mother.

To finish the month, Prince of Peace Parish will hold a perpetual Rosary at Holy Family Church, 607 Sabattus St., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31. The Rosary will be recited continuously with prayers for the election the following week. Social distancing guidelines will be followed and face coverings will be worn. All are welcome to attend. Participants can stay for as short or long a period as they prefer.

The Month of the Holy Rosary was instituted to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in gratitude for the protection that she gives the Church in answer to praying of the Rosary by the faithful.
