Brochures and Sign-up Forms are being mailed to all registered parishioners this week!

On October 3, 2015 the parish of St. Rose is hosting a special morning of service for parishioners of all ages! We have created some exciting project offerings for you to participate in. Projects are designed for families, couples, and singles and for all ages from toddlers to senior citizens. There truly are options for everyone. In the booklet you will find details on each project and, where pertinent, information on the organization we will be serving.
This event is a great way to meet new people, have fun with old friends and also provide valuable service to those in need. We hope you can join us on October 3rd!

 A Look Back At Stewardship Day- April 18th 2015

On April 18th 2015, hundreds of parishioners gathered for our annual Stewardship day event. They provided service to numerous organizations and agencies throughout the Archdiocese of Newark. We are grateful to the countless volunteers and project leaders who enabled our success. It was a most memorable day!
