The word rosary comes from Latin and means a garland of roses, the rose being one of the flowers used to symbolize the Virgin Mary.

According to catholic.com, the rosary is a devotion in honor of the Virgin Mary. It consists of a set number of specific prayers. First are the introductory prayers: one Apostles’ Creed (Credo), one Our Father (the Pater Noster or the Lord’s Prayer), three Hail Mary’s (Ave’s), one Glory Be (Gloria Patri).

The very last prayer in the devotion is Hail Queen (Salve Regina), sometimes called the Hail Holy Queen. It’s the most commonly recited prayer in praise of Mary after the Hail Mary itself, and was composed at the end of the eleventh century.

St Ann’s, located at 33333 Mayfair Avenue, has been active on YouTube during the COVID-19 pandemic and for the past week has been uploading both Sunday Mass, Saturday Mass, Daily Mass and several other events onto the video site.
