The Rosary Apostolate

Our Lady of the Rosary with St Dominic and St Catherine
This week we are joined by Fr John Walsh OP who is the Irish Dominican Province’s Promoter of the Holy Rosary. 

The Rosary Confraternity is a spiritual association under the patronage of the Order of Preachers.  Confraternity members strive to pray the entire Rosary during the course of each week.  The members share in the daily prayer of the Dominican Fathers for the living and deceased and for many indulgences.

On the programme Fr John reflects on the rosary and how it is a summary of scripture on a string  of beads. He leads us through the various mysteries and gives some tips on praying the rosary.

If you would like to enrol in the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary and to share in its spiritual benefits and graces, simply send your name and address to Fr. Walsh at the

Irish Dominican Rosary Apostolate and Confraternity, 42 Parnell Square Dublin 1. 

You will receive a lovely package of prayer cards, leaflets and rosary beads.   You will also benefit from knowing that you are linked in prayer with others all over the world who are dedicated to spreading devotion to Mary and love of her Divine Son through this holiest of prayers.

You can listen to the interview with Fr John HERE.
