Mission & Philosophy


The Mission of St. Rose Parish is to foster a greater knowledge and love of God through the worship of our Lord, Jesus Christ; grounded in celebration of the sacraments, education and faith formation, and service to the community.


St. Rose Parish School provides students and families a Christ-centered environment promoting faith development, academic excellence, and a commitment to service.


It is the belief of St. Rose School that families, parish, and school work in partnership to provide a strong Catholic educational experience to its students in preparation for life.

  1. The education of children is first and foremost the responsibility of the family.  It is in the home that concepts, attitudes, and behavioral patterns are formed and that have a strong bearing on the direction and progress of a child’s education.
  2. St. Rose Parish assists parents to be effective teachers of religious education by providing the opportunities for spiritual growth through liturgical and volunteer experiences.  The parish partners with home and school to prepare children for the reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
  3. The school’s role is to coordinate the academic education and supplement it with other tenets of the school philosophy.  With teachers as facilitators, St. Rose School reflects a commitment to the Catholic faith, provides an atmosphere that allows students to reach their academic potential, encourages the development of social skills, and promotes lifelong learning.
