St. John Berchman's Church (552 Main Street, Cankton 70584) will begin its 18th Annual Rosary Congress

After the Mass, each participant will receive a brown scapular and rose for their participation in the Rosary Congress. This will be followed by a breakfast and reception.
The Rosary Congress is open and available to everyone who wishes to participate. Please consider joining its leaders in prayer as the community prays for God's peace and mercy upon the world, communities, churches, families and our hearts.
Leaders especially encourage youth groups, confirmation students, and religion classes to consider spending some time with God during the daily Youth hour at 5:00 PM. A French rosary will also be prayed 6:00 PM every evening.
Openings are available every hour on the hour for the duration of the Rosary Congress, with a special need for any individuals with a flexible schedule who could commit to the early morning hours (1:00 AM to 8:00 AM).
