Free Mobile App Combining Advent and the Rosary

November 26, 2012

Family Rosary offers free mobile app for Advent and Christmas to help people stay focused on the true meaning of the season.

EASTON, Mass. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it can be difficult keeping Christ in Christmas. This year, though, it will be a lot easier, thanks to a free mobile app for Advent from Family Rosary.

Featuring meditative music with scripture and reflections, this new app for iPhone, iPads, and Smartphones is the perfect spiritual aid while standing in line to buy presents or trekking to stores in the wee hours for that midnight madness sale. When Advent begins on Sunday, Dec. 2, the mobile app will feature a new prayer each day to help keep the focus right where it needs to be.

Best of all, the Advent mobile app from Family Rosary is free! It can be downloaded on iTunes or by going to m.FamilyRosary.org/Xmas. It’s a great way to start each day during Advent with a moment of reflection on the spiritual significance of the season.

This is the second mobile app offered by Family Rosary. The first–Pray the Rosary–has already topped 20,000 in downloads at iTunes.

Family Rosary, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, is a member ministry Holy Cross Family Ministries, which was founded by Servant of God Father Patrick Peyton, CSC, in 1942. A candidate for sainthood, Father Peyton was one of the most influential American Catholic priests of the 20th century.

In the spirit of its founder, Servant of God Father Patrick Peyton, CSC, Holy Cross Family Ministries encourages family prayer, especially the Rosary, to support the spiritual well-being of the family. For more information, call 800-299-7729 or visit www.FamilyRosary.org.
