Summer Vacation Bible Camp 2018 - everyone had a great time 'Living in the Lord's Kingdom

You may be aware from media coverage this past week of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report on sexual abuse of minors by Catholic priests that Bishop Barres was referenced in the report stemming from his time as the Bishop of Allentown.

On Monday, August 6, Danielle LaRose was inducted into the 2018 Massapequa Hall of Fame for "...extraordinary achievement in community service".  Congratulations Danielle!

Just in time for summer fun, St. Rose of Lima has purchased a subscription to FORMED, a wonderful website that has been called a "Catholic Netflix."  FORMED has inspiring movies (including children's movies), video based studies, audio talks, and e-books, to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus, and share your faith with others.  Click here to register for FORMED!

On Thursday August 23, join us as we celebrate St. Rose Day - in honor of our Patron Saint and our Parishioners - with a Family Movie Night and Mass! The Movie will be Pixar's Coco; stay tuned for more details!

Welcome Fr. Leo Song!  Fr. Leo was ordained by Bishop Barres on June 23 – we are blessed that he has been assigned to our parish! For more information and photos from the ordination, visit

Congratulations to Bishop Richard G. Henning, ordained Tuesday, July 24 at 2pm, at St. Agnes Cathedral!  His motto: "Put out into the deep" 

On Sept. 9, we will have our annual backpack blessing at the Family Mass at 9:30 am, with a fun hospitality following in the auditorium.

Save the date and plan to join us in the auditorium on Saturday October 20, from 6:15 - 10pm, for a night of family fun - Pretzels & Perogies!  More details to come.

Good luck to Fr. Tim Valentine!  Fr. Tim has been assigned to St. Ann's in Garden City.  We thank him for being with us, if only for a short time, and wish him well in his new assignment.
