An online Rosary group which began at St John’s Cathedral in Norwich in the wake of the Covid pandemic has now prayed every night for more than a year.
The group was established by Jo Graham, Lead Catechist at the Cathedral, and first met on Zoom on 20th March 2020, just before the first lockdown.
It is a diverse group, with members hailing from Italy, the Philippines, Ireland as well as the UK. About 20 families attend most nights.
As well as praying the Rosary, the group has held several Novenas for friends and relatives of the group who have passed away in the last year, including Ermie Astorga and Estrella Catalan, and these have been attended by over 100 people.
Jo Graham said: “We started off praying for a vaccine and we now give thanks that vaccines are being rolled out across the world, but we keep praying for an end to the pandemic.
“We pray for many other needs and we also get a regular weather forecast from one of our members, Federico.”
The group has been a great support to people especially during lockdowns.

Likewise, if anyone has any specific prayer intentions, they can send those to the same email address and the group will include them in prayers at a future online Rosary meeting.
