How to Pray the Family Rosary

Praying the Rosary

Don't worry about how "well" you pray the Rosary. Just pray it. As with anything new, you may stumble at first but it will soon become natural and you'll begin to miss it if you skip it! Give the Rosary a try and pray one decade today!

Rosary Facts

There are four sets of Mysteries: Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious. The Mysteries tell the story of Christ's life through his Mother Mary's eyes.

Keep it Simple and Manageable

Praying the Rosary doesn't have to happen in a quiet chapel before Mass. You can pray it with your family in the car, around the dinner table, or right before bed. We know you're busy, so let prayer naturally fit into your daily schedule.

Daily Mysteries

Each day of the week is assigned a set of Mysteries to pray that day. Some people pray the Joyful on Monday and Saturday, the Luminous on Thursday, the Sorrowful on Tuesday and Friday, and the Glorious on Wednesday and Sunday. But, you can pray them any day you wish. Whatever works best for you and your family.
