Monthly Rosary for Healing and Protection
through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Protector of Children, our prayers can help to create awareness and
opportunities for healing for those who have been abused.
Each month, supported with your prayers, the Secretariat of Child and Youth Protection offers a rosary for the healing of those who have been sexually abused, and for the protection of minors and the vulnerable.
For resources to pray the Rosary, visit the USCCB "How to Pray the Rosary" page. You can also view the online or printable version of the Rosary to be used.
New dates and times for future Rosaries will be posted each month. For more information, please contact the Secretariat of Child and Youth Protection at firstname.lastname@example.org.
