When people think of the Fourth of July, they usually equate it with celebrations consisting of picnics and fireworks. For the fourth consecutive year, Trinity Heights in Sioux City will host a Patriotic Rosary for people looking to mark this holiday in a prayerful way.
Larry Walsh, a member of the spiritual committee at Trinity Heights, noted that the rosary would be held at 7:30 p.m., July 4. It is open to people of all faiths. Past years have drawn a crowd of about 200 people.
"We will be praying the rosary, using the Sorrowful Mysteries to ask the intercession of our Blessed Mother to come upon this nation and change the hearts of the people that seem to have forgotten the origins of this nation and what we are truly about," said Walsh. "The nation has strayed so far from our connection with our creator over the last 230 years." Catholic Globe
