There are THREE WAYS to do a Rosary Congress in your diocese. Below you will find an outline of the schedule of the three ways to do a congress. Within this website are details and forms of  how you can plan your congress once you decide which format you would like to do.

THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL ROSARY CONGRESS is to remain faithful to the Eucharistic Adoration around the clock and to have one or more people lead the Rosary out loud every hour.

The three ways to hold a Diocesan Rosary Congress

October 7 – Opening Mass at the last vigil Mass of the day, followed by Eucharistic Procession (optional), followed by Eucharistic Adoration and hourly recitation of the Rosary for the entire week.
