The Annual Global Rosary Relay idea is a simple one. Each of the participating shrines in 50+ countries prays a particular mystery of the Rosary at a particular half hour on the day in thanksgiving to God for our priests and to implore the protection and loving care of Our Lady, Mother of all priests, for all her priestly sons.

The annual Global Rosary Relay for the sanctification of priests on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on 3 June 2016 circled the world in prayer once again, in this its seventh year, with more shrines than ever taking part in what is now recognised as a truly significant and powerful devotional initiative within the Catholic Church to recognise and bless the work of priests serving the faithful the world over.

The event took on an even greater significance this year when the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization in Rome agreed that the Annual Global Rosary Relay for the sanctification of Priests would close the three-day Jubilee for Priests at 6p.m. in St Peter’s Square on 3 June (actually on the steps of St Peter’s Basilica) with the president of the council leading the rosary on that day.
