The World Wide Prayer Group of Our Lady of Emmitsburg is currently being set up as a prayer group whose participants pray privately for the intercession of Our Lady of Emmitsburg throughout the month. On the 1st Sunday of each month, around 3:PM, U.S. EST*, joining with participants all over the world, in the privacy of their own homes, members come together in prayer, forming a living world wide heart of prayer in unity with the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
* For those who cannot pray at 3:00 U.S. EST, please pray at anytime on the 1st Sunday of the month, with the intention of solidarity with the prayer group.

This is done to represent the occurrence of the apparitions to Gianna Talone Sullivan, during the Public Marian Prayer Group meeting. See "Rosary Reflection Suggestions" below.
