LEM Speaker Series


The Rosary: Spiritual Strength for our Times, with Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC


Thursday, November 10

12:00pm - 3:00pm

What will be covered?

When Our Lady gave the Holy Rosary to St. Dominic in the 13th century she informed him that it was a spiritual battering ram to be used (prayed) against heresy and falsehoods. Throughout the centuries, this great Marian prayer has proven itself to be a spiritual strength to all who pray it. As the author of five books on the Rosary, Fr. Calloway will present a history of the Rosary, the many victories it has won for souls, the wondrous miracles attributed to it, and the great saints and popes who have promoted it. In this talk, you will come to understand the Rosary like never before and how you too can transform your life in ministry with this wonderful devotion.
