Members of the Thomas Aquinas College community on both coasts will pray the Holy Rosary for the sanctification of priests on Friday, June 24, the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The gathering will mark the conclusion of WorldPriest’s twelfth annual Global Rosary Relay, an international prayer chain in which members of the faithful across the world take turns praying a designated set of mysteries, thereby encircling the planet in prayer for 24 hours. Thomas Aquinas College is blessed this year to serve once more as the last leg of the relay, spiritually delivering the world’s prayers to the Blessed Mother from its campuses in California and New England.

The event will begin at 6:45 p.m. PDT / 9:45 p.m. EDT, as College chaplains lead the recitation of the Joyful Mysteries on their respective coasts.

In total, more than 300 congregations in more than 85 countries will participate in the relay, continuously praying the mysteries of the Rosary over the course of 24 hours. The prayers will be offered to God in thanksgiving for all priests, as well as to seek the loving care of Our Lady for her priestly sons.
