Do Anglicans say the Hail Mary and the RC Rosary?

I was always told by my family that if I converted to Anglicanism, I would have to give up saying "Hail Marys" and the Rosary. Is this true?

Not at all.

I still love the Hail Mary and the Rosary...

There is such a sthing as an Anglican rosary, with several different versions....basically praying and meditating on the life of Christ...but I still have a huge attachment to the old RC Marian rosary I grew up with.

No worries! It is perfectly fine to pray the Marian rosary, or use an Eastern Orthodox prayer rope, etc.

Anglicans are a very inclusive and welcoming lot who respect the diversity within Christian tradition.

I am delighted to hear that. But my dear grandmother who would have been 110 this year converted to Roman Catholicism because she loved saying the rosary (and for other reasons, obviously). This would suggest that in the 1930s, when she converted, the Anglican church were not in the habit of saying the rosary. I am a bit confused now. I definitely remember her saying that as an Anglican she did not say the rosary and that she was introduced to the rosary by a Roman Catholic priest.

Some do some don't. Some pray the Anglican Rosary which is slightly different. I for one pray both. I alternate and pray the Anglican Rosary one night and the Marian Rosary the next.

I find saying Hail Mary Mother of God as comforting and devout as saying Jesus Lamb of God.

I believe it is a personal thing, the same as crossing oneself. I for one crossed myself before I attended Catholic Mass (I did so for over 6 months) and continue to do so now.

We have has some good threads on both the Rosary and Crossing oneself in STR recently, I will try and dig the links.

In Him

Anglican churches do not restrict your private prayers and devotions. We aren't that kind of church.
