St Dominic Receives the Rosary

Will you pray the Rosary for peace?

Rosary Center

Dominican Fathers



Welcome! We are headquarters of the Rosary Confraternity of the Catholic Church, a world-wide movement of prayer for peace. We are administered by the Dominican Fathers, Fr. Joseph Sergott, O.P., Director. We are located next to the Holy Rosary Church in Portland, Oregon, USA, the city of roses. Included is how to pray the rosary. Those who pray the Rosary regularly would do well to be enrolled in the Confraternity to gain extra spiritual benefits for each Rosary they pray.

Pope Saint John Paul the Great declared the Rosary as his favorite prayer, a "prayer for peace and for the family". Read his Apostolic Letter "Rosarium Virginis Mariae" (Rosary of the Virgin Mary). Pope Benedict XVI in 2008 stated "... the Rosary is experiencing a new Springtime. Without a doubt, this is one of the most eloquent signs of love that the young generation nourish for Jesus and his Mother, Mary. In the current world, so dispersive, this prayer helps to put Christ at the center...." And in 2011, a "contemplative and Christocentric prayer, inseparable from the meditation of Sacred Scripture," is "the prayer of the Christian who advances in the pilgrimage of faith, in the following of Jesus, preceded by Mary."

Please join our brothers and sisters in Ireland for ROSARY ON THE COAST FOR LIFE AND FAITH IRELAND. Ireland’s faithful are turning out in great numbers to pray for a great restoration of the faith especially among the youth and to pray for protection for our Unborn babies, in Ireland, North and South. The "Rosary on the Coasts for Life and Faith" will be held on Sunday 26 November, the Feast of Christ the King starting promptly at 2:30 PM (local Irish time).
