FOOD for CHRIST 2018 "Feed and Be Fed"
Servings of Food collected in 2018 = 50,020!
That is 60% of our initial goal of 80,000 servings of food.
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.
All types of non-perishable food are needed. Items most needed include:
APRIL - Condiments (mayonnaise, ketchup, salad dressing, mustard, spices), Soup (vegetable, tomato and bean), Paper Towel, Toilet Paper and personal care items.
MAY - Tomato Sauce, Diced/Whole Tomatoes, Pasta Varieties, Boxed Broth and Peanut Butter
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

Raising Kids in a Toxic Culture: Religion as a Protective Factor
Every day our children receive messages from advertisers, music, movies, television, adults and peers, to name just a few. Kids experience more stress and anxiety, and are at risk for more problem behaviors today than ever before. We can’t put our kids in a bubble, but what if we could “inoculate” them?
Psychologist and researcher, Dr. Mariette Danilo will discuss how we can help kids navigate a world where you are what you look like and what you can buy. The good news is that the research has identified Religion as a “protective factor” for kids. Join us as we cut through the hype and discuss the real sources of self-esteem, motivation, joy and optimism.
Mariette Danilo holds a Ph.D. in Psychology from Columbia University. As an academic, she taught graduate psychology courses in psychology and education. As a researcher in the Institute for Health Behavior Research at the Cornell University Medical College-New York Hospital Center, she has lectured extensively on Health Psychology and Adolescent Risk Behavior. Her research has focused on the cognitive, emotional, and psychosocial variables involved in the prediction and prevention of risk taking and health compromising behaviors in adolescents.
