Your Special Intentions
Imagine thousands of people praying together for YOUR special intentions.
Just imagine joining your prayers to theirs.
Blessing Procession and Parish Family Representative Pre-register your whole family or a small group of up to 4 people representing a school, Knights of Columbus council, or any Catholic organization. The Blessing Procession starts the program at 2:00 as participants process in and are blessed by Bishop Olmsted and Bishop Nevares. Some families choose to carry a rose to present to Our Lady. Some organizations carry a banner with their name. Everyone in the blessing procession reserves their own seat in a designated area and signs in by 1:00 p.m. the day of the program.

Prayer Intentions Prayer boxes are located at most parishes throughout the Diocese of Phoenix so you can write out your prayer intentions and drop them in the box. Your parish representative will bring the box of prayer intentions to Arizona Rosary Celebration. We will pray together to lift your intentions to God during the celebration, and we will continue praying for your intentions all year. Please download a prayer intention slip in English or Spanish and write down your prayer intentions. Put the written prayer intentions in the box at your parish or bring them to the celebration in October and place them in the prayer intention box when you come into the hall at the Phoenix Convention Center. God bless you.
Prayer Campaign Please join our prayer campaign for this statewide event. The prayer campaign is updated monthly. Thank you!
