Registration for faith formation classes will be Wednesday, Sept. 11th.  The kindergarten through fifth grades will register in the parish center library.   The junior high and high school registration will take place at 7:00pm in the parish center gym.  It is a requirement that at least one parent attend registration.  Confirmation registration for juniors or seniors is on a separate date, (Sept. 22nd at 6:30 in the parish center library).

Students preparing for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (in second grade) are required to turn in a copy of their baptismal certificate by Nov. 1, 2019.  You may turn the copy in when you register for faith formation classes or when you send your child to St. Agnes (turn into Mrs. Cyza).  This will ensure that all students are baptized and ready to receive the sacraments.

The schedules for Faith Formation classes are listed under the faith formation tab.  They are listed as a document on the far right column.  Please scroll down and click on the document.

9:00 am - Noon MT

Holy Rosary Lyceum

Totus Tuus was another success here at Holy Rosary this past week.  We had 56 students participate this year.  Students enjoyed songs, games, snacks, and learning.  The emphasis was on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary and The Sacraments.  Below are a few pictures of the week.  If you would like to see more pictures, please go to the faith formation website,



The Stewardship Council of Holy Rosary and the diocese hosted a prayer workshop on June 1st.  Kory Koralweski of the Stewardship and Development office of the diocese lead the day-long workshop.  We started off with Mass in the church followed by cinnamon rolls and fruit for a morning social.  Our first session focused on Lectio Divina and how to pray in this way followed by several video presentations from Matthew Kelly on how to focus on prayer, including the Prayer Process (a process to follow to pray).  Holy Rosary arranged to have Subway sandwiches brought in and provided salads and desserts.  There were approximately 35 participants from around the diocese.  The majority of attendees were from our parish.  There will be three more prayer workshops around the diocese.  Here are a few pictures from our day.

August 18-19 and 25-26 are our Stewardship Renewal weekends.  This year our theme is Growing our faith through prayer, service, and generosity.  Our first weekend we will have a witness talk given by Kory Koralewski who is the Stewardship and Development Director of our diocese.  Parishioners will be given a leaf to write on how they want to grow in their faith through stewardship.  Also a new and improved Here I Am booklet will be available for all parishioners to take home.  This booklet highlights most of the ministries available in the parish and the person who is the head of that ministry.  Please take time to browse this booklet to see how you can share your time and talents.

August 25th and 26th will be our survey weekend.  It was formally known as the time, talent, treasure survey.  We have changed the name to reflect our theme and more accurately explain what actions reflect stewardship.  We will compile the information gathered in survey a couple of weeks following the survey weekend.  The ministry heads will be contacted with the list of people who signed up for that particular ministry.  They are to contact any new people who are on their list and explain how they can get involved.  There are a few ministries that are on a needs basis, i.e. babysitting for programs.  If there is a need, we will contact the people who signed up for that ministry.  Also on this second weekend of Stewardship, we will display the tree with all of the leaves from the previous weekend.

 This group of young adults and chaperones from Holy Rosary recently traveled to Indianapolis, IN for the 2017 gathering of the National Catholic Youth Conference.  They were among 20,000 other youth from across the country who met to spend 3 days together learning more about their faith.  While there they participated in daily mass, reconciliation, and enjoyed many dynamic speakers, musicians and comedians.  They were supported financially by many generous people from the parish through various fundraising events over the past year.
