Second Annual Rosary rally set for Oct. 13

Thousands are expected to walk from St. Mary's Cathedral, and to be joined by many more, to pray the rosary literally in the public square — United Nations Plaza across from San Francisco's City Hall — at noon Oct. 13.

The Second Annual Rosary Rally coincides with the opening of the Year of Faith by Pope Benedict XVI two days earlier. Catholic school children, religious education students and all the parishes are invited, with busloads from Bay Area parishes and schools expected, organizers said. The rally was re-instituted last year on the 50th anniversary of Father Patrick Peyton's rosary rally which drew a half-million people to Golden Gate Park in 1961.

"God does care about what is happening around us. As his followers and representatives to the world at large, 'The Rosary Rally,' is a powerful tool to witness the 'good news' of Christ to those in need of hope and direction," said Msgr. James Tarantino, vicar for administration and moderator of the clergy.

The rally will include recitation of five decades of the rosary in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, Benediction and speeches.

For many the day will begin with a 9:30 a.m. Hispanic Mass.
