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

Receiving Holy Communion

12-08-2017Fr. Joe Fessenden

Note: This is the first installment of a series Fr. Joe is writing over the next several weeks on the history of the Mass and what’s going on when we do what we do as Catholics. Some of these things you will already know. Some will be new. We invite you to read all of them, because, even if you have heard them before, it’s a good refresher as we start a new liturgical year.

You’ll notice that starting this past weekend, we have brought back the communion patens during the distribution of Holy Communion. The communion patens serve two purposes. Remember, we, as Catholics, believe that Jesus Christ is truly present, body, blood, soul, and divinity even in tiny particles of the host. Therefore, the patens provide a protection against the host falling to the ground, and they catch any particles (crumbs) which may fall from the host as it is carried through the air. Since our Lord comes under the appearance of bread and wine, there are bound to be such crumbs, and we want to do all we can to prevent Him being trampled underfoot.
