Father Willy Discusses "Rosary Priest" on EWTN


On a recent episode of EWTN News Nightly, Father Willy Raymond, C.S.C., President of Holy Cross Family Ministries, discussed his own encounter with Venerable Patrick Peyton, the “Rosary Priest” and founder of Holy Cross Family Ministries.


Declared “Venerable” on December 18, 2017, Holy Cross Father Patrick Peyton made it his mission to promote the Rosary, coining the phrases “The family that prays together stays together” and “A world at prayer is a world at peace.” His work in media took him to Hollywood where he established Family Theater Productions and enjoyed friendships with many movie stars and celebrities.

A novena for family unity, inspired by Venerable Patrick Peyton’s work and in thanksgiving for his being named “Venerable,” begins today. Join us as we pray this rosary novena together with our partners in ministry at Holy Cross Family Ministries.
