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. Dispensation from attending Sunday Mass has been extended indefinitely.

Even though we continue through the challenges of a pandemic, we are blessed at Saint Rose in so many ways. Last weekend, our First Communion classes celebrated the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation for the first time. It took several priests all morning to hear the confessions! This weekend, Bishop Spalding will confer the Sacrament of Confirmation on over 100 candidates from our parish. These are exciting times for celebrating the sacraments at Saint Rose!

If we have a problem, it is that we are running out of room at most of our Masses! Please be sure to sign up for Mass. And thank you for your understanding if you need to attend Mass in the gym. We are trying our best!
