Traveling rosary unites rural parishes
August 9, 2019
In light of recently announced rural parish groupings, Catholics from Norfolk and the surrounding area gathered together every Monday evening in July to pray a traveling rosary, which they called Tour de Maria.
The goal of the ministry was to unite the communities and connect members in prayer and fellowship, said Tour de Maria’s founder Emilie Borer.
Each week the rosary was prayed at a different parish. The tour began at Sacred Heart Parish in Norfolk and on successive Mondays traveled to St. Peter Parish in Stanton, St. Leonard Parish in Madison, St. Patrick Parish in Battle Creek and St. Francis de Sales Parish in Schoolcraft.
Tour de Maria will continue through August at St. Francis Parish in Humphrey and the surrounding parishes of Holy Family in Lindsay, St. Mary Parish in Leigh and St. Michael Parish in Tarnov. The rosary will again be prayed every Monday of the month.
