Welcome to St. Rose

Dear friends in Christ,

I welcome you to the parish website for St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. St. 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.

I 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 St. 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. I 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.

In Christ,
Rev. Mark R. Sappenfield
