Rosary Society

Mission Statement: The Rosary Society fosters devotion to Mary through prayer, and good works for causes that would be dear to her heart.

The St. Mary’s Rosary Society is an organization for women of our parish who are devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Its primary purpose is to encourage the prayer of the Rosary; to promote fellowship, support, and spirituality among its members; and to generously donate our time, talent, and treasure to causes and needs within our parish.

We are, truly, women  — of Prayer:  by striving to pray the Rosary at least weekly, and to bring awareness  of the special graces that Our Lady’s Rosary can bring.

– who Share: by enjoying many activities and events throughout the year, with opportunities for prayer, support, and friendship.

– who Care: by helping to donate to worthy causes where needed in our parish, mostly from the proceeds of our single annual fundraiser, our Christmas Dinner.

Monthly meetings, following the 9AM Mass and recitation of the Rosary, are normally held in the St. John Paul II Room on the second Friday of the following months:

October, November, December, February, March, April, and May.

Refreshments will be served, and all are welcome to attend.

Dates will appear in the weekly parish bulletin.

Becoming a Rosarian

The Rosary Society welcomes all women who are registered parishioners of St. Mary’s (in good standing).

Prospective members, those women who wish to learn more about our group, are encouraged to attend our “New Members Breakfast,” held each March. New members are inducted at a special Mass each April (in conjunction with our Communion Brunch).

Participation in any of our events is open to all.

Dues are $25.00 per year.

All events/activities/news/updates will be posted here and in the weekly church bulletin, and sent to those members who provide an E-mail address.
