WASHINGTON DC – Sunday, October 6, 2024

The 54 day Novena for Our Nation concludes with Rosary Coast to Coast featuring hundreds of Rosary Rallies across the country.


This year in 2024, the October 7th Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary falls on Monday, Oct. 7.  We will not have the opportunity to gather in prayer on the actual feast day, the National Rosary Rally will be held on Siunday October 6th at our nation’s capitol.  Rosary Coast to Coast rallies are encouraged to also take place on Sunday, October 6th. Resources are available to support both dates – Click Here.


Rosary Coast to Coast is anchored by the National Rosary Rally at the US Capitol.


The 2024 National Rosary Rally will take place on Sunday, October 6, starting with the National Eucharistic Procession from St. Peter’s Catholic Church on Capitol Hill to the rally site at the eastern edge of the National Mall at 3rd Street facing the US Capitol. 


This year our focus is going to be on prayer, with having an intention and short reflection before each decade of the Rosary instead of a rally talk. Rosaries will be prayed along with intentions that include: respect for life at all stages of development, especially the unborn; the sanctity of marriage and families based upon God’s creation of man and woman; upholding constitutionally protected religious freedom; and the return of our nation to God and Holiness. The Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary will be prayed simultaneously across the nation with Rosary Coast to Coast at 4:00 pm.


Nationally renowned speakers including a Bishop, Priests, a consecrated religious Sister and laypeople will address these intentions.  Fr. Richard Heilman clarifies:  “Importantly, this is not intended to be a political event.  Our hope is to influence the direction of our country through prayer”.


“I wholeheartedly endorse the Novena for Our Nation and the Rosary Rally… I urge as many as are able to participate in these great spiritual works for the sake of our entire nation.”

Cardinal Raymond Burke


“May there arise a new movement of people who couragiously will pray the Rosary in public places. May “Rosary Coast to Coast” bring to all citizens of the United States, to the peopel people with governmental responsibilities, to all faithfull Catholics, to priests and bishops a spiritual grace-filled rain of roses.”

Bishop Athanasius Schneider


“I am 100% supportive of the Rosary Coast to Coast movement! Our world is in major trouble and we need to turn to the prayer that Our Lady has most insistently asked us to pray in all of her recent approved apparitions: the holy rosary.”

Fr. Donald Calloway MIC, Author, Consecration to St. Joseph and Champions of the Rosary


“This 54 day Novena and the Rosary Rally are all part of the effort we need to end preborn child killing and attacks on marriage and the family.”

Fr. Richard Heilman, President of the Holy League
