The MGL Sisters have gathered each weekday since April with Friday marking the 100th time they have joined to pray.

The Sisters began this initiative at the request of a friend who was worried about COVID-19 and her children and wanted to pray the Rosary with someone else leading it.

Sr Judy Bowe has been involved in the prayer gatherings and said it has been a very positive experience with 100 prayer gatherings being a milestone.

“We just think that 100 is a record-breaking number and we wanted to celebrate it as a landmark,” Sr Judy said.

“We pray the Rosary, say a quick hello and goodbye and then we go, but the ones that have been joining in have really been enjoying it and it is a connection point during this time of COVID.”

Sr Judy said the response has been encouraging and uplifting.

“It’s surprising when people want to join in from overseas but it is amazing to have an international prayer experience where you can see people praying with you in different countries,” she said.
