Welcome from Rev. Nicholas M. Allen

Dear friends in Christ,

Welcome to the parish website for Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Saint Rose is a vibrant Catholic parish with over 2,000 registered families and a great preschool and school, thus serving the spiritual growth of people of all ages. Our purpose is to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ, and to proclaim his love to the world.

We hope that this website serves as a valuable resource for you to inform you of the many wonderful aspects of our life of faith here at Saint Rose. Please take some time to explore the many great things that we do at this church and ask the Lord to guide you in how you can be more involved in serving him by serving one another. We pray that the Lord bless you and those that you love and that He grant you peace in this life and eternal happiness in the life to come.

What We Do as Catholics

Preparation of the Gifts

02-18-2018Rev. Joe Fessenden

The priest then says the prayers in preparation of the gifts. These prayers are Christian adaptations of the barukh prayers from the Seder (Passover) meal. For example, this is the beginning of the blessing of the bread in the Seder: ברוך אתה ה' א לוהינו, מלך העולם, המוציא לחם מן הארץ (Remember Hebrew is read right to left) Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu, melekh ha'olam, hamotzi lehem min ha'aretz. Blessed are You, LORD our God, King of the universe, Who brings forth bread from the earth… You should be able to see some reflection of the opening of the prayer over the bread said by the priest, at this point: “Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer you…”
