October is traditionally the month dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary. Nations around the world are hosting their great Rosary Crusades and we join them, especially Ireland in a great union of prayer.
Once again Catholics across England, Wales, Scotland and the Isles are invited to take up their rosaries for an intensive Rosary Whirlwind Mission for the spiritual well-being of the British Isles and for its preservation from degeneration, disaster, sickness and war.
Daily we are witnessing increasing levels of violence, rebellion and lawlessness. The Church is under great attack, the faith is being undermined, the sanctity of life is not honoured and peace is lacking everywhere. The COVID-19 global pandemic threatens a second wave – people are fearful of what the future may hold. More than ever we need to intercede for our Isles and for the conversion to Christ of our peoples and that they are protected from all danger, from all sickness and from all evil.
Our refuges are the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary with the mantle of protection of St. Michael & the Angels, St. Joseph, and our Saints & Martyrs.
Rosary Whirlwind will invoke the mighty intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary inviting a WHIRLWIND of Heavenly Grace to blow where it wills across our Nations. It will take place from wherever you are and will have four main components!
- Invitation to a nightly online Rosary at 20:00 led from a different Marian Shrine, Cathedral or Parish – see facebook.com/rosaryonthecoast/ to find the live-stream each evening.
- On Tuesday, October 13th – Feast of Our Lady of Fatima of the Holy Rosary we will undertake the Rosary Whirlwind British Isles from wherever we are. You are invited to sign up your location on the Map at www.rosaryonthecoast.co.uk
Participants are encouraged to arrange Rosaries in places all over our Isles – Rosary in your neighbourhood, Rosary around your parish or diocese, Rosary from your convent or monastery, Rosary in your home, from your hospital bed, your prison cell, from your care home, Rosary online – Rosary from wherever you are called.

May the Rosaries offered on the Eve of All Saints 2020 – be a defence for our peoples and Isles from the snares, traps and entanglements of the devil.
- The Culmination of the Rosary Mission will be on Sunday, November 1st– Feast of All Saints – when Bishop John will lead a thanksgiving Rosary at 20:00 from St. Mirin’s Cathedral, Paisley, Scotland.
“I want you to know that in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Rosary.” – St. Dominic
Imagine the joy of the Blessed Mother when she sees the entire British Isles full of people imploring her powerful intercession!
