Blessing of the Luminous Mysteries Garden

Wednesday, May 29, 2019
Last Friday brothers Albert, Isaac, Vincent and Bede travelled to the parish of our Lady of the Rosary and St Dominic, London, to witness the blessing of a garden dedicated to the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary. 

The garden complements the church building, which is a shrine dedicated to our Lady of the Rosary and contains side-chapels dedicated to the traditional fifteen mysteries. A Mass marking the Translation of our Holy Father St Dominic was followed by a procession to the garden, while the traditional Dominican Litany to our Lady was chanted. The garden was blessed by Dom David Charlesworth OSB, former Abbot of Buckfast Abbey, who also preached and celebrated the Mass.

Our Lady of the Rosary - pray for us.
St Dominic, our Father - pray for us.
