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 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!
For a Bigger Experience...
Looking for a bigger experience? Here are some ideas...
Adoration "People ask me, 'What will convert America and save the world?' My answer is prayer. What we need is for every parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in holy hours of prayer." Saint Teresa of Calcutta Doors open at noon for adoration, confession, and exhibits.
Altar Server Altar servers process in the Blessing Procession and may assist at the altar as well. Would you or someone you know like to be an altar server in this wonderful celebration? We hope to include representatives from every parish in the Diocese of Phoenix. Please download the Altar Server Packet to see the forms and all the information in English and Spanish. Thank you.

Confession Are you a priest who can come hear confessions? Please send an e-mail to info@AzRosary.net. We need you! Thank you!
