Honoring Mary Under Her Title

Our Lady of Sorrows

For 45 years, the Diocese of Phoenix has been home to one of the largest annual public Rosary celebrations in the United States. For the past eight of those years the Rosary Sunday tradition was joined by the Diocese of Tucson. This major celebration in honor of Our Lady is sponsored by the Arizona Knights of Columbus and is now held in conjunction with the Dioceses of Tucson and Phoenix. Assistance is given by many groups and organizations, including the Legion of Mary and Catholic Daughters of America. Invitations to participate are being extended to all parishes and groups in each diocese.
