Daily Recitation of the Rosary

Daily recitation of the Rosary at The Grotto will take place everyday, one half hour before each Mass.

Lord God, as we begin this new day, we thank and praise you. Today we pray for those who seek the truth and those seeking for the true meaning in their lives. Transform their sadness into joy. Grant them clarity in mind and heart. Transform their confused mind and troubled spirit with your consoling and healing embrace. Free them from the power of the evil one that inflicts and confuse them. All these we ask of you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

St. Denis, bishop, and Companions, martyrs, and St. John Leonardi, priest, pray for us.

Enjoy the dramatic cliff and tall evergreens which separate the lower level with the Upper Gardens at The Grotto.
