One organization believes so much in the power of prayer, it opened a museum dedicated to it.

The Museum of Family Prayer opens today in North Easton, Massachusetts. It offers a unique, interactive experience of prayer for the family using digital media. The museum is expected to attract those on a spiritual pilgrimage, as well as general visitors who want to learn more about prayer.

It’s open to everyone, of every faith, continuing the work of Fr. Patrick Peyton.

“Our work is to educate, inform and celebrate the mission of Father Patrick Peyton as well as educate and enlighten those who journey here to learn more about the power of prayer,” said Fr. Willy Raymond, C.S.C., president, Holy Cross Family Ministries.

Known as “The Rosary Priest,” Fr. Peyton staged massive prayer rallies around the world after becoming a priest in 1941. He used radio, film, billboards, television and celebrities to help promote prayer, thus becoming one of the first pioneers of evangelism using mass media.

Fr. Peyton helped popularize the phrases, “The family that prays together stays together,” and “A world at prayer is a world at peace.”

State-of-the-art interactive, educational and reflective exhibits, graphics and media content will be utilized throughout. The museum also includes a family room and chapel, all encouraging guests to touch, listen, watch, reflect and pray.

“In order to engage in this technology-filled world, the Museum of Family Prayer is filled with impactful images, digital and audio media and projected prayers to show that in every corner of the world people are praying — Catholics, other Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and others — this commonality unites, rather than divides,” said Fr. Raymond.

While exploring the roots of the Rosary, it also discusses Fr. Peyton’s lifelong work and the power of prayer.

“In today’s world, prayer is needed now more than ever,” said Fr. Raymond. “We continue Father Peyton’s legacy promoting the power of prayer. We hope that the museum’s multimedia experience speaks to those who are looking for inspiration, exploration and connections.”

The Museum of Family Prayer is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free.
