                     Please kneel.  (Wait until motion stops…)

For many hundreds of years, the Rosary has been a special prayer of the Catholic Church.  When we think about the mysteries of the Rosary, we are coming closer to Mary, who was the closest person to Jesus.  As our heavenly mother, she teaches us about her Son, Jesus.  Let us unite our hearts with hers and ask her Son to help us in all that we do.  As we pray this decade of the Rosary, the leader will say the first half of the prayer. Please respond together with the second half of each.  (Pause…)

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen

• Leader #4 Ellie Carolan
Hail Mary (three times)

Hail Mary (three times)

                    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in

                     the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.                                                                          

   In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen

• All leaders bow toward the altar and return to their places.
