Mary of Nazareth “Rosary Crawl” Announcement

Runs from October 13- 23, 2014

Welcome to MARY of NAZARETH “Rosary Crawl”!

As part of Ignatius Press’ immensely successful theatrical and parish screening program for MARY of NAZARETH, some 200,000 people viewed the film on 552 screens in more than 270 cities across North America.

Now MARY of NAZARETH is on DVD (released Oct. 15). Ignatius Press is also releasing a book, Mary of Nazareth: The Life of Our Lady in Pictures, on Nov. 4 in conjunction with the film. This volume combines inspiring commentary and meditations by the popular Marian priest, Fr. Donald Calloway, with over 65 lovely photos from the movie.

During this month dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary, we organized a MARY of NAZARETH blog tour (“Rosary Crawl”). Beginning October 13 and lasting through Oct. 23 —every day one of ten bloggers will post a clip from the film that focuses on a mystery of the Rosary. Please note: The Mysteries of the Rosary will not be in order due to preference given to a blogger’s preferred mystery to reflect on.

As readers follow along on this virtual blog tour, they will have a chance to read honest reviews from Catholic bloggers, participate in a “Rosary Crawl,” learn more about this unique tool for evangelization in our church and enter to win a copy of the DVD!

Thank you to all the incredible websites who are hosting a stop on this blog tour. Please support them by visiting their sites.
