The Family Rosary
of the Roman Catholic Church
With the pace of every day modern society, many families feel disconnected from other members. There is a very old saying that the family that prays together stays together. We have found that to be true. Praying the Rosary together as a family is one of the best ways to open communication lines and build trust.
The Family Rosary is the Rosary recited aloud together, by as many of the family and their friends as can be present, or even by only two. Any family may say the Family Rosary in any suitable place and at any time.
A leader says aloud the first part of each prayer; a second person or group of persons answers aloud the second part of that prayer.
To begin the Family Rosary, all hold the Crucifix of their Rosary in the right hand and make the Sign of the Cross.
The leader begins the Apostles Creed and proceeds to say the Our Father on the large beads and the Hail Mary on the small beads. The leader announces the Mystery before each decade. Five decades should be recited each day.
