DISCIPLE MAKER INDEX SURVEY is open!
Please complete the survey by MARCH 5
St. Rose parish members, Click HERE to complete the survey
St. Rose is participating in an international survey on discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute. Please help by completing a 10-15 minute survey online. The survey can be accessed at www.disciplemakerindex.com from February 5-March 5, 2018, and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on what efforts the parish is doing to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole. We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to Msgr. Graham and our various ministries as we plan ahead and try to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish. Thank you for helping with this important project!
FOOD for CHRIST 2018 "Feed and Be Fed"
Servings of Food collected in 2018 = 30,706!
As a caring faith community, St. Rose Parish is undertaking a bold new initiative in 2018 to help END HUNGER in our COMMUNITY. Right now, 80,000 people in Montgomery County are hungry and struggle to put food on their table. 1/3 of them are children! Together, we can change this reality. Beginning in January, we are asking every member of our Parish family to help feed hungry families as Jesus has called us to do. What can you do?
- Each week, when you shop for your family, purchase one extra non-perishable food item to Feed those in need.
- Bring food donations to Mass and place them in the donation bin in Church, and then Be Fed by the Word of God.
Food items most needed:
FEBRUARY: Cereal & Canned Fruit
MARCH: Canned Protein
(chicken, SPAM, salmon, beef stew, chicken & dumplings, etc.)
At every weekend Mass, we will be colecting non-perishable food items. Our goal is to collect at least 80,000 servings of food — one serving for every hungry person in our community! We need your help to defeat hunger! For more information click HERE
