Rosary Bowl 101

In our day the "Rosary Bowl" initiative does not find it's meaning in the size or type of venue for the event but rather in Fr. Patrick Peyton's inspiration, "The Family that Prays Together, Stays Together." 
(The first Fr. Peyton Rosary Events began in Canada subsequent to Fr. Peyton participating in the historic 1947 Marian Congress where the Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of the Holy Rosary was installed in the Peace Chapel) 
To that end, today's "Rosary Bowls" simply bring the young and the well initiated together to pray the rosary. Although Canada's first Rosary Bowl was held in a stadium, it was apparent to organizers that families attending and praying the rosary together was the major takeaway.
