Each Sunday evening at 6:30 PM CST, Bishop Ricken is leading the Rosary from the Shrine's Apparition Chapel as a part of the "Rosary for Our Nation."  The "Rosary for Our Nation" is a daily prayer at the Shrine and Bishop leads on Sundays.

You can pray along with Bishop at https://championshrine.org/livestream-rosary/

This call to prayerful action will serve to connect as many as possible who wish to collectively catalyze the power of prayer for these express intentions:

  • For our nation at a time of trial
  • For an end to abortion in this country
  • For an end to the pandemic
  • For an outpouring of the Holy Spirit

Bishop Ricken has asked to spread the word.  He wants the faithful to know that this is a simple act of faith - not a big production.  He has been concluding the rosary with a short reflection of what's on his mind.  He prays in the Oratory for 30-45 minutes before the rosary and the Blessed Mother inspires his remarks.
