Saint Rose is a vibrant Catholic parish with over 2,900 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.

Pastor's Letter

Pardon and Peace

09-26-2021Fr. John Sims Baker

I want to point out the weekday times for Confession here at Saint Rose. Not only do we have Confessions on Saturdays and Sundays -- actually twice each of those days; but we also have Confessions every day of the week! The weekday times are usually less busy and therefore perhaps better for a more relaxed time for Confession. On Mondays and Fridays, Confessions begin at 6 a.m.; and on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, Confessions begin at 5 p.m. I hope that these times are easy to remember. There is the added benefit with these weekday Confession times of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament going on at the same time! These really are times offering "pardon and peace" as the ritual for the sacrament proclaims!
