The “Rosary on the Coast”: today Sunday, 29th April at 3pm there will be “The Rosary on the Coast” on the Traigh Mhor in Eoligarry. The rosary prayer is for Faith, life and peace in the British Isles”. It would be good to start arriving from 2.30pm onwards so that we can organise ourselves into how to pray the Rosary. The Statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be taken out of St. Vincent’s church and be brought to the Traigh mhor. The housebound are most welcome to come along. Just make yourself known to any marshals who will organise parking on the beach. Each decade of the Rosary will be represented by each of the 5 churches on the islands.  Everyone is welcome to come along to the Rosary. The Rosary is one of the most important prayers we have. Thousands all over the UK coastline are gathering in different locations -so come along and join in this important  prayer. All you have to do is bring your own Rosary Beads. After the Rosary there will be refreshments and home-baking  in Northbay Hall. All welcome!
