On 29th April, many Catholics will be gathering on the coast to pray the rosary together for 'Faith, Life and Peace in the British Isles'.
Inspired by the ‘rosary on the border’ in Poland last year, a group of British Catholics were driven to organise a similar event here. Parishes and faith groups across the country are being invited to take a day trip to the seaside and join in this special event. So far there are 84 groups and growing, spread out across England, Wales and Scotland, stretching from Orkney to Jersey.
In a letter, Cardinal Vincent wished participants well with their ‘act of witness’ and assured them of his prayers.
Although most of the groups are on the coast, in major landlocked cities like London, Nottingham and Sheffield churches will be hosting groups to pray the rosary at the same time in support of those on the coast.
