Passing of Bill Kring

It is with sadness & admiration that we inform our parishioners that William (Bill) Kring passed away at the age of 98 at his home in Michigan. 
Many of us might not be familiar with him, but Bill Kring was the Music Director & Organist of St. Rose Parish from 1970 - 2000. Throughout his career, Mr. Kring introduced the choir, congregation and community to many wonderful pieces of sacred music. In 1987, Mr. Kring led the Parish Choir on an international tour to Italy singing many concerts and culminating with singing at a Mass with the Pope!  Some of our current choir members sang with Mr. Kring from the very first year the parish choir began!  May he rest in peace.
