    A message from Fr. James Boric, Rector - Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary:

    In 1978 the people of Poland changed their country by calling together a Rosary Congress. For 1 week, the Poles adored Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. They prayed the rosary every hour on the hour. They attended Mass. They repented of their sins and went to confession-all in an effort to end the oppression of communist government and to allow their beloved John Paul II to come home and celebrate Mass.

    Their prayers were answered! Not only did Pope John Paul gain access to his beloved Poland, but the winds of change swept through the country...and eventually led to the collapse of the communist regime.

    This freedom came about because men, women and children prayed the rosary in front of the Blessed Sacrament for an entire week!

    For the first time ever in Baltimore, we are hosting a Rosary Congress to change the world too. From Oct. 7-13 the doors of the Basilica of the Assumption will be open for continuous Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and recitation of the Rosary. Special masses will be offered for our children and our families. There will be talks and opportunities for confession each day.

    This is how we will bring peace to our world. And so my question to you is: will you help us in this mission?


    God Bless,

    Fr. James Boric

    Rector, Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

    "Our Lord has called us to open our hearts to the Faith and bear witness to the Gospel. Likewise, Pope Frances has asked all Catholics to evangelize our brothers and sisters in our local communities. 

    The Catholic Business Network of Baltimore seeks to fulfill these important Gospel mandates. Both organizations provide an environment for Catholics to grow in their faith while affording an opportunity to invite other members of our community to experience the Truths of our faith in their work lives. 

    I am pleased with the work of both organizations and encourage involvement in their efforts."
