Where: More than 80 shrines in 50+ countries; the rosary will begin in Siberia with the Joyful Mysteries, move to the underground Church in China, then to Australia, India, Eastern Europe, and westward, ending in Guatemala at midnight with the Sorrowful Mysteries
How: Participants will pray a specific set of mysteries of the rosary and then spiritually pass the prayer to the next location; individuals and small groups are encouraged to gather to pray in their homes or at their local parish; U.S. East Coasters can join EWTN in praying the Joyful Mysteries at 9:30 a.m. (rebroadcast at 9:30 p.m EST).
