Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary
As recited in St Joseph's each weekday morning

We Offer our Rosary each day as Our Lady requested to protect family life, to safeguard the Church, to make reparation for sins and a return of devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. 




Leader: Thou, O Lord, will open my lips 
Response: And my tongue shall announce Thy praise
Leader: Incline unto my aid, O God 
Response: O Lord make haste to help me


Glory be to the Father, 


The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth,

and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;

He descended into hell, the third day He arose again from the dead;

He ascended into Heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty,

from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church,

the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Salve Regina


Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy. Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us and, after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. 

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

Leader: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
Response: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray: 
O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating on these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

We Pray To St Michael The Archangel

Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in the hour of conflict, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God restrain him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust satan down to hell and with him all wicked spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls.


Concluding Prayer

May the Divine Assistance always remain with us 

And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in Peace Amen
