Each member strives to pray the complete Rosary each week (this does not bind under sin), and must have his/her name inscribed in the register of the Confraternity. There are no meetings, no dues.To enroll, please fill out the following information. We will mail your certificate of membership and Light & Life newsletter, so please be certain the address is correct.
Ordinarily the enrollment should be filled out by the one to be enrolled. In other words, one should not enroll for another, thinking it would be good if they were enrolled. The reason for this is that the enrollment is a personal pledge to strive to pray the entire Rosary each week. One may enroll for another party, only when they are sure the other party understands the conditions for membership, and has asked to be enrolled.
To be enrolled one must be old enough to be able to understand and fulfill the weekly obligation of praying the complete Rosary. We do not enroll families as such, but only individual members, whose names must appear individually in our register. The deceased cannot be enrolled in the Confraternity.
As Pope Leo XIII said in his encyclical on the Confraternity, "whenever a person fulfills his obligation of reciting the Rosary according to the rule of the Confraternity, he includes in his intentions all its members, and they in turn render him the same service many times over." Each member includes deceased fellow members as well; and thus he knows that in turn he will be included in the prayers of hundreds of thousands both now and hereafter. This led the Cure of Ars to say: "If anyone has the happiness of being in the Confraternity of the Rosary, he has in all corners of the world brothers and sisters who pray for him."Please submit the enrollment once only, it may take up to two minutes to complete the process. You should receive confirmation and your certificate in the mail in 2 - 3 weeks (may be longer for international addresses).
