This annual event led by Father Willy Raymond, C.S.C., President of Holy Cross Family Ministries and all our beloved priests at The Father Peyton Center, will be shared via livestream for the first time. The ministry is calling for people to connect with loved ones and family members, and to pray together during this celebration; perhaps over lunch or just a nice peaceful moment in their day. We will begin with the praying of the Rosary on our beautiful outdoor Rosary Walk, with meaningful reflections for each Mystery. The Praying of the Rosary will be followed by the Celebration of the Mass from the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Chapel at the Father Peyton Center.
