Mass will be preceded by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.

The enthronement rites took place on September 30 as a prelude to the Naval Festival in Manila on October 10. From October 1 to 9, the faithful are invited to send their prayer request by lighting a virtual candle through “Alab ng La Naval” which is broadcast live at 8 p.m.

The feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary was instituted by Pope Pius V in 1571 in commemoration of the naval battle of Lepanto. The victory of the Christian fleet over the Turks was attributed to the powerful intercession of the Blessed Mother whose help was invoked by praying the Holy Rosary. Also called Our Lady of Victory, the feast was extended to the Universal Church by Pope Clement XI in 1716.

Widely venerated throughout the country, Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary is venerated as Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan, Our Lady of Piat in Tuguegarao, Cagayan, Our Lady of Peace and Bon Voyage in Antipolo City, and Our Lady of -Lady of the Holy Rosary La Naval de Manila.

According to accounts, the Holy Rosary was revealed to Saint Dominic of Spain in 1208 by the Virgin Mary as a loving meditation on the main events in the life of Jesus and Mary.
