Rosary Society

     The Most Precious Blood Rosary Society was organized in 1898.  At its development,  one of its purposes was to honor and venerate the Blessed Mother and create special interest in the practice and spread of the devotion of the Rosary.  The current society begins each meeting with the Rosary and leads the Rosary at the funeral homes as our fellow parishioners are finishing their earthly life.  We continue to honor our Blessed Mother with our annual May Crowning each May.

            A second purpose of the Rosary Society was/is to act as hostesses for the pastor at parish celebrations.  We continue this ministry as we host receptions for Easter Vigil, Confirmation, and Christmas concerts; as well as other parish celebrations.

            Thirdly, the Rosary Society earns monies which are used to fund church and school programs, as well as provide for those people who are needy in our midst.

            All women of the parish are invited to join and participate in the Rosary Society.  Our meetings are usually the first Monday of the months of Oct.-Nov. and March-June.  The September and May meetings are the second Monday due to the Labor and Memorial Day holidays.  There are many areas which would welcome more participation such as baking, volunteering of time at our many fund-raising events (rummage sales, craft show, candy and bake sales) as well as at our twice-yearly visits to Byron Health Center.  In addition, we welcome women to join the groups who lead the rosaries at the funeral homes.  The current yearly calendar as well as the contact information for our current officers follows.  Please contact any of the officers if you have questions or would like more information on our society.
