DETROIT — From the plaza outside the Basilica of Ste. Anne on Detroit’s southwest side, Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron led a rosary on Sunday to pray for peace and racial justice as protests continue across the country in the wake of the May 25 death of George Floyd.

About 150 people gathered to pray as the archbishop denounced the evils of racism, saying it “violated the dignity of a human person.”

The rosary comes on the heels of several days of gatherings in downtown Detroit, including clergy and local Catholics who carried a cross in procession during the protests.
