Christ is at the center of all we do at St. Rose School.
A highlight of the week is Friday Mass. At 9:00 a.m. students in grades Kindergarten to 8th grade meet in the church to share in the Liturgy. Each week classes take turns being readers, gift bearers and leaders of song. Students also assist as altar servers. Our Principal is present at Friday mass and many school families join us which makes it a very special time for our school community.
We also celebrate Holy Days together and have special liturgies for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Another highlight of the year is Grandparents/Special Persons Day which begins with a beautiful Mass, filling the church with all the people our students hold dear.
St. Rose School students receive preparation for the following sacraments:
- First Reconciliation -- 2nd Grade
- First Holy Communion -- 2nd Grade
- Confirmation -- a 2 year preparation period starting in 7th grade; the sacrament is received in the Spring of 8th grade
Our students are blessed to have Religion class as part of their daily curriculum; we also participate in a variety of service outreaches as a school community including food drives, coat drives, a mission drive to support needy children in Ghana among many others.
Sister Thaddeus, a member of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, teaches 6th and 7th grade Religion, plans our weekly Liturgies and all school retreats. She also prepares students one on one for their sacraments if they are receiving them at unique time. Sister runs the annual Food Drive and Lenten Mission. Her presence is a gift to our community.
Our Pastor, Monsignor Weiss, is very involved with the school community; he is a great support to the Principal and is a big proponent of our students and families. He adds a wonderful dimension to the St. Rose School experience.
