THE Young Adults Rosary Prayer Group is a circle of friends in their 20s and 30s who have realised the power of prayer.
Each week they gather at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Sunnybank, on Brisbane’s southside, to join in prayer, watch films that help them grow in their faith, chat, laugh and support one another.
The group was formed early last year and most of its members had never prayed the Rosary before.
‘It all began at my home when two of us joined in prayer, and since then the group has continued to grow so that there is now up to a dozen young people coming together each week,’ said Kim Pfeiffer who is the group’s organiser.
‘Several of us belong to Our Lady of Lourdes parish and others come from various parishes around Brisbane.’
The Rosary prayer group always welcomes new faces and young people who would like to be closer to God, learn more about the Rosary and our Catholic faith and would like to make good friends.
The group also holds social outings.
Group members say that praying the Rosary has helped them to get through difficult situations in their lives and take time out from their busy lives to think and pray.
‘Through praying the Rosary many of our prayers have been answered,’ said Kim.
‘It has brought us together as a group of friends, sharing in each other’s joys and sadnesses.’
