“As a patron for the Rosary for Life and Faith I am more than happy to support this initiative.
Reflecting on the mysteries of the life of Jesus through the eyes of Mary as we pray the Rosary is a wonderful prayer. It is a prayer that gives us time to reflect and contemplate on the mysteries that bring us life and help us to live lives of faith. It is a prayer in which we are able to pray for many petitions and many intentions.
I commend to you the Rosary for Life and Faith.”
Bishop Patrick Dunn
“When Bishop Pompallier first celebrated Mass in Aotearoa New Zealand in January 1838, he placed our country under the protection of Mary assumed into heaven. In the Rosary Crusade, let us ask her to bless our efforts to create a society in which life is respected and treasured from the moment of conception until natural death.”
Bishop Colin Cambell
“Family prayer is so important for our lives today. One of the best means is the Family Rosary. I remember as a child and after the evening meal my mother would usher us all into a room for the Family Rosary. Looking back on that experience I am grateful for the Family Rosary as it was a wonderful feature in our family life”.
