Our Lady of the Rosary

Although today is celebrated as the 27th Sunday of Ordinary Time, it is also (though not celebrated this year) the feast Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel at Santa Sabina.

It is also the travel day for Sister Mary Rose to return home from Italy and the important meetings she attended. We share with you a few concluding photos of this important event.

Then they joined the Community of Friars there for Mass and Vespers, followed by refreshments in the cloister.
