Mark your calendars and join the daily live broadcast!

“Guided by Shrines around the world during this month of May, we recite the Rosary to invoke an end to the pandemic and the resumption of social and work-related activities.”

This was what Pope Francis said during his General Audience at the Vatican on May 5, 2021. He is urging every faithful around the world to participate in the month-long Rosary marathon to pray for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of this initiative promoted by the Dicastery for the New Evangelization, the prayer marathon unites 30 Marian Shrines around the world as leaders in praying the Rosary every day. (Read: Antipolo Cathedral Joins 30 Marian Shrines for Global Rosary Month)

Below is the list of Shrines where the Rosary is prayed each day at 6:00 p.m. Rome Time, with links to watch live, or afterwards on-demand.
