#ShortNews: Thousands of Catholics pray Rosary around the coast of Britain

Thousands of Catholics across Britain and abroad prayed the rosary across Britain for ‘faith, life and peace. The event, which is believed to be the biggest Catholic gathering since the visit of Pope Benedict XVI in 2010, saw over 400 groups pray at sites along the British coast, and a few abroad. Crowds varied in size from single families to several hundred people at some locations.

Fr Ross Crichton, who led the group on the Isle of Eriskay in the Outer Hebrides, described the day as “glorious”. The group, he said, prayed in both English and Gaelic, after which the children buried a Miraculous Medal in the sand.

Meanwhile, Fr Tom Grufferty led a group in Gosport, Hampshire. “As soon as we began the ancient prayer of the rosary there was a real spirit of a community with everybody raising their minds and hearts to God in Prayer,” he said.
