The Rosary

Holy Cross Family Rosary encourages family prayer, especially the Rosary.

Fr Peyton had great belief in the Holy Rosary and seen it as an important form of prayer for individuals, for familes, for communities and for the world.

The Rosary is a prayer of peace and in Ireland this was particularly dear to Cathloic families.

Join us in supporting the spiritual well being of the family, in the spirit of our founder, Servent of God Fr Patrick Peyton C.S.C.

“the family that prays together stays together”

History of the Rosary

Pious tradition says that St Domnic was taught the Rosary by the Blessed Mother but there is no proof of that. Historical records tell us that Pope Alexander V1 urged the faithful to pray the Rosary in a message he wrote in 1495. Popes down through the years have since support devotion to the Rosary. It rapidly became one of the most popular forms of prayer among Catholics. Praying the Rosary had become an everyday form of worship in homes throughout the world. The Rosary has been promoted by renowned Catholics i.e Pope John Paul 11, Fr Patrick Peyton C.S.C. and Mother Teresa.

The attraction of the Rosary is strong, it provides a way of praying that believers want, a way of praying that is tangible and meditative at the same time. The Rosary beads in our hands are the physical representations of the prayers we are offering.

On October 16th. 2002 Pope John Paul II introduced a new mystery, the Mystery of Light, focussing on Christ’s ministry while on earth and this beautiful mystery is now recited on a Thursday.

How to Pray the Rosary

  • Make the Sign of the Cross with the crucifix of the Rosary.
  • Say the “Apostles’ Creed”.
  • On the 1st bead from the crucifix, say one “Our Father”.
  • On the 2nd,3rd and 4th beads, say the “Hail Mary”.
  • Say one “Glory Be to the Father”.

For each of the 5 decades:

  • Announce the Mystery.
  • On the large bead before each decade, say one “Our Father”.
  • Say ten “Hail Marys”,(one for each small bead of the decade) while meditating on the Mystery.
  • Say the “Glory Be to the Father”

Closing Prayer

  • Say the “Hail, Holy Queen”.

School Lunches

We provide school snacks for one hundred and ten pupils per day. There are two rural schools availing of the service. Those schools are in the primary schools “disadvantaged” category. The Fr. Peyton Centre is contracted by the schools to provide this service; they in turn are grant aided by the Department of Education.

On speaking with the school principals they see this service as a great incentive to children to eat a healthy diet and are anxious that the service continues. We intend to approach other schools within a ten-mile radius and request them to investigate the possibility of them been included for the service
