Our parish strives to provide as much comfort to our families as possible, especially in difficult times. For immediate relatives of registered parishioners, we want to help celebrate the life of your deceased loved one. We provide free of charge the use of the parish hall for a gathering following funeral services held at our church as well as all paper goods, table covers and coffee. We do ask that the family and/or friends of the deceased please help with the setup of tables and chairs as well as clean up.

Order of Candidates & Catechumens of Adults

Holy Rosary & St. Mary's Parish welcomes new members into the Catholic Church through a process of education, faith sharing, and rituals.  This process includes several stages marked by prayer, study, and discussion.  Included in the process are several Rites, which take place within the context of the Mass.  This program is for all adults who would like to be fully initiated into the Catholic Church. Our program, "Order of Candidates & Catechumens of Adults" is a 1-Year program.

The 2022-2023 season will begin on Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 8:40am with an Information Session held in the Msgr.
