Tonight I will be attending a funeral visitation for a friend's family member who passed away. There is a rosary ceremony at one point and I was wondering how long this usually takes. I will likely be able to make it to the viewing right around the time the rosary starts. I want to plan for the length of time this takes, or figure out when to come after it ends if it takes an extended amount of time.
it depends, if it starts on time and there is only the rosary and litany, maybe half an hour. Here the family sometimes has someone to sing a hymn between each decade, give a reflection or talk about the deceased or other things that make it go longer, so I allow at least an hour, plust time before or after to speak to the family. the rosary is not performed, it is prayed.
