Encountering the Fullness of Christ in this Community

We have resumed the public celebration of Mass at Saint Rose. The celebration of Mass is the heart of our parish's core purpose of being the place of encounter with the fullness of Christ in this community. It is wonderful to begin again! Dispensation from attending Sunday Mass extended to August 3.

First Communion

This year, First Communion will be distributed during the regular Masses in June.

Reservations for First Communion are locked five days before the scheduled Mass.



A chapter of Fraternus will be established at Saint Rose this fall. Fraternus is a program that mentors boys into virtuous Catholic men. This is an exciting opportunity for the young men of our parish.
