Saint Philip Parish!
The Diocese of Providence will be hosting our second annual Diocesan Traveling Rosary Congress from October 2- 8, 2021. The Rosary Congress is a week long period of intense, around the clock prayer consisting of Perpetual Adoration and Hourly Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet, offered in a spirit of reparation. We are joining with other dioceses across the nation to pray for the healing of our Church, our families, and our nation (see rosarycongressusa.org). As the Church suffers from persecution from within and without, as family life is attacked more viciously than ever before, and as life continues to be threatened in its most vulnerable stages, we need this unified prayer now more than ever. The Rosary Congress will travel to a different parish for each 24-hour period from October 2 - 8, 2021. Our parish will be hosting the Congress on Friday, October 8, 2021 starting with the 8:00 AM Mass. We will then have a period of 23 1/2 hours of Adoration starting at 8:30 AM and will conclude with a special Mass to close the Rosary Congress at 8:00 AM on Saturday, October 9, 2021. We are in need of at least 2 adorers for every hour starting at 9:00 AM - 7:00 AM the following day. The Rosary and Chaplet of Mercy will be prayed aloud at the beginning of each hour. Individual booklets with specific meditations for the Rosary & Chaplet will be provided for the leader. Please use this sign up to pick the hour that is best for you. Please contact Joan Bessette at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 401-651-2563 if you have any further questions.
