Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Shrine, Portland, Oregon, USA

Why enroll at a shrine? Sanctuarium in Ecclesia

Each member of the Rosary Confraternity strives to pray the complete Rosary each week (3 Rosaries, 15 decades, and this does not bind under sin, complete details here), and must have his/her name inscribed in the register of the Confraternity. There are no meetings, and no dues. To enroll, please fill out the following information. We will e-mail your certificate of membership and a link to the Light & Life newsletter, so please be certain the e-mail address is correct, as well as your mailing address. Also, please add rosary@rosary-center.org to your contact/address list, so it won't go to junk/spam. You may also read more about the obligations, benefits, indulgences and promises for membership in the Rosary Confraternity.

The benefits of membership are:

  1. The special protection of the Mother of God.
  2. A share in the prayer of many hundreds of thousands of members the world over, even after death.
  3. A share in the prayers, Masses and apostolic works of the entire Order of Preachers.
  4. The intercession of the entire heavenly court.
  5. Various plenary and partial indulgences.
  6. Six times a year the Rosary Center publication THE ROSARY, LIGHT AND LIFE is sent to those members who wish it. Its purpose is to provide sound doctrine and spiritual guidance for readers everywhere.

Pope Leo XIII stated in his apostolic constitution 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” (Ubi Primum 1898, 1).

Ordinarily the enrollment should be filled out by the one to be enrolled. The reason for this is that the enrollment is a personal pledge to pray the entire Rosary each week. One may enroll for another person, only when they are sure the other person understands the conditions for membership and has asked to be enrolled.

To be enrolled, one must be old enough to understand and fulfill the weekly obligation of praying the complete Rosary. The deceased cannot be enrolled in the Confraternity.

We do not sell or share your information with third parties. View our privacy policy.

You should receive confirmation and your certificate in an e-mail within 10 working days. To ensure that you receive your enrollment via email, please check your spam/junk folder and add the address rosary@rosary-center.org to your contact list/address book.

To enroll by mail, please print and mail this information and enrollment form: Confraternity application form (to print).

Please submit the enrollment form only once; it may take a few moments to process.

15 Promises of The Blessed Mother

  1. Those who faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary shall receive signal graces.
  2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
  3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell. It will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
  4. The recitation of the Rosary will cause virtue and good works to flourish. It will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God. It will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
  5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary shall not perish.
  6. Those who recite my Rosary devoutly, applying themselves to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. In his justice, God will not chastise them; nor shall they perish by an unprovided death, i.e., be unprepared for heaven. Sinners shall convert. The just shall persevere in grace and become worthy of eternal life.
  7. Those who have a true devotion to the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
  8. Those who faithfully recite the Rosary shall have, during their life and at their death, the light of God and the plenitude of his graces. At the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
  9. I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
  10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.
  11. By the recitation of the Rosary you shall obtain all that you ask of me.
  12. Those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
  13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of their death.
  14. All who recite the Rosary are my beloved children and the brothers and sisters of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
  15. Devotion for my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.(Given to St. Dominic and Bl. Alan de la Roche)
