Although this project is under Catholic sponsorship, an invitation is extended to all Christians regardless of their religious persuasion. This sacramental is a beautiful ceremony with everyone in attendance responding to the prayers of a huge rosary held in the hands of 60 people.

The solemn devotion begins in a dimly lighted atmosphere, following brief preliminary remarks by the Army and council chaplains, as well as the Grand Knight of Keough Council.

Then the director of the Rosary proceeds with appropriate prayers, stopping before each person holding a bead and lighting a small blue bulb -- the hue signifying the color of the Virgin Mary.

This procedure is continued until the end, when the entire rosary is lighted.
