Lichen Community of the Rosary

We invite you to join the Lichen Community of the Rosary, whose mission is to pray for families and the Homeland in spiritual communication with the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Sorrows, Queen of Poland and Patroness of family life. At the same time, members of the community belong to the Marian Spiritual Family at the Licheń Shrine and follow the Mother of Christ in their daily lives in the service of God and people. A sign of their spiritual bond with the Licheń sanctuary is the presence of the image of Our Lady of Lichen in their home.        

On joining the community, at least one mystery of the rosary is recited daily. It can also be a prayer recited as part of other rosary communities or spiritual works, such as the Living Rosary, Jasna Góra Family of the Rosary, Spiritual Adoption of the Conceived Child, Pompeian Novena, Parents' Rosary for Children, etc.

The Lichen Community of the Rosary does not replace, nor is it an alternative, for any rosary community, but it enriches the prayer about the message of Our Lady of Lichen, calling for conversion and penance. When praying the rosary, we remain with our hearts to Our Lady of Licheń. We also care about maintaining, as far as possible, ties with the Licheń sanctuary, among others by reading Lichen magazines, such as: "Pilgrim Licheński", "Zeszyty Maryjne", "Mother of Peace". Also through participation in the rosary retreats and the annual pilgrimage to the Licheń sanctuary.

All members of the Lichen Community of the Rosary receive correspondence materials on current events in the life of the sanctuary. For the intention of the members of the Community, a Holy Mass is celebrated. every third Tuesday of the month.
