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, will be held in the St. John Paul II Room on Fridays, the following dates for 2021-2022:

October 1,  November 5, December 10, February 4, March 4, April 1, and May 6.

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

Dates will appear in the weekly parish bulletin, and reminders will be sent to members via email.
