Holy Rosary Christmas Pageant 2014
Holy Rosary Faith Formation Program presented The Nativity Story on Wed., Dec. 17th at 5:30pm in the church. The students did a fantastic job as they didn't get to practice except for 2 readings before they put on the costumes and presented the play. The kindergarten through fourth grade students were the actors and the fifth grade students narrated the story.

Stewardship Council Active at Holy Rosary
The Stewardship Council has been busy with this year's Stewardship Renewal. The theme of "We Are God's Hands" was chosen. The idea of a banner with the congregation holding out their hands was discussed and with the generous donation from Just Shoot Me Photographics, it became a reality. The idea of stewardship was started with a Stewardship Prayer being read for about a month before we conducted the renewal weekends. A witness talk was given by Larry Snyder at all of the masses and the Here I Am Booklets were positioned in the pews for people to see all the areas of ministry that require volunteers to be successful. The following Sunday the Time, Talent, and Treasure brochures were put in the pews for people to fill out at the beginning of Mass and brought up at the time of the offering. The Time, Talent and Treasure brochures were tabulated and reports were created for each ministry. The reports were mailed to each of the heads of the ministry to contact any new people who were interested in the ministry and provide training so as to get them involved.
These are pictures of the Stewardship Council members (Roger Applegarth and Dale Collins) hanging the "We Are God's Hands" banner in the church with the help of Gretchen Rischling.
Holy Rosary Missions Projects
The missions collection means more than just Haiti. Yes, they are distributed on the international level such as Haiti, but we also give to reputable national organizations (Heifers.org) that help the needy, as pictured below. At the local levels, we help with immediate needs found in the community. One example is the green wheelbarrow at the church entrance. The contents are given weekly to the "Just Neighbors" organization. Your generosity reaches many avenues for the needy. Please click on the link to see the certificate of appreciation the parish has received.
