Fundraiser to Replace the Church’s Audio System: A beloved and generous Parishioner of Holy Rosary is sponsoring a 50 / 50 fundraiser to finance the cost of replacing the Church’s sound system.   In total, we are looking to raise $20,000 to cover the cost of these improvements.  Our Parishioner – who wishes to remain anonymous – will match dollar for dollar on the first $10,000 received.  TO DONATE:  Donations can be made through the Online Giving page of this web site.   In the alternative, you may drop a check in the fundraiser basket at the back of the church.   Please make sure to write “2022 FUNDRAISER” on the subject line of your check.   Thank you for your continued generosity to our Parish.

For REGISTERED PARISHIONERS ONLY! Our Parish is in the process of converting to a new database.  This is a long process, but when it is completed near the end of 2022, we will have a robust database that will better serve all of our parishioners and their families. In order to serve you best, we need a working email for your family. Please send an email to holyrosary@aol.com with your name in the subject line (and envelope number, if available).  We will then insert that email in your record in the new database. Your cooperation is essential and is greatly appreciated.  We look forward to receiving your emails.  Thank you.
