New Schedule

This is the new provisional schedule for Saint Rose Parish for the rest of the summer through August 15 (see front cover). Here is a summary of the changes: We are moving the bilingual Mass from Sunday afternoon to Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m.

We are moving all the Sunday Masses to begin 30 minutes earlier. They will now be at 7, 9, and 11 a.m. and 3 and 5 p.m. The Saturday evening Masses remain at the same times.

The bigger changes are on the weekdays. We will Mass every morning in English (7 a.m. MF and 8 a.m. on Saturday). On Tuesday, there will be Mass at 6:30 p.m. in Spanish. On Wednesday, there will be Mass at 6:30 p.m. in English. On both Tuesday and Wednesday, there will be Confessions at 56:15 p.m. In July, there will also be Confessions at 23 p.m. on Saturday.


Announcements and Events

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.


Journey Home Meal Preparation

Did you know that Saint Rose has been partnering with The Journey Home for almost two years to prepare meals for 130 homeless people in Murfreesboro?

If you feel called to assist, please join us on one of the dates from 9:00am to 11:00am at The Journey Home: 308 W. Castle St., Murfreesboro, TN. 37129.


PSR Teachers Needed

Please consider serving next year as a PSR teacher. This is an outstanding way to help others encounter the fullness of Christ.
