What is the Pilgrim Rosary:
On the opening day of the Jubilee, the Master of the Order blessed a number of "pilgrim rosaries" (which had been made by Nuns in different monasteries around the world) that were then sent to each Dominican monastery in the world. These are a symbol of communion for the entire Dominican family in prayer. Also, the schedule of the Jubilee gives two days at each monastery to invite the local Dominican Family it to pray the Holy Rosary, so we form a continuous chain of prayer throughout the Jubilee Year (7 Nov 2015 – 21 Jan 2017). The monastery becomes, during those 48 hours, the centre of the Dominican worldwide Rosary.
