The monthly collection of donations for St. Vincent de Paul will be after all Masses January 25-26. Our special needs at this time are dinner plates, tall drinking glasses and cereal bowls. Other household items are always appreciated. Thank you for your help!
This month’s Love Story:
It was a beautiful Christmas surprise. Randy and I attended the 10:30 Mass at Holy Rosary on Christmas morning. Flowers, lights, music and people filled the joyful space. Father Tim was presiding.
At the Offertory, Father Tim said, “We are so happy that the Saint Vincent de Paul Ministry is part of our parish. The volunteers do good work with the poor. There is a statue of Saint Vincent up here at the altar. Next to it is a basket for donations. Please support our Saint Vincent de Paul Ministry."
With that began a steady procession of individuals who came up to the basket one by one to deposit their offerings. My eyes filled with tears to see so many people participating on that Christmas morning. They just kept coming. The generosity was wonderful. And this gesture from Father Tim was completely unexpected!
The money came at a time when the ministry was in need of money. The beds, appliances and furniture that we purchase require cash above-and-beyond the generous donations of household goods and the Giving Tree gifts from the parishioners. There are times when our cash reserves get low, and this Christmas was one of those times.
The beautiful Babe in the manger was the long-awaited surprise, but the generosity of the parishioners was also a lovely Christmas surprise.

The Feast of the Epiphany is an important celebration for the Church…and a great reason to have a party!
Join us Sunday, January 5 after the 9:30 mass for a celebration in the SS Peter & Paul Church Center (2490 N Cramer St). We’ll have coffee, juice, and treats (including the traditional Epiphany “King Cake”). We will sing “We Three Kings” and crown our own kings and queens. You can also pick up the materials to do the special Epiphany blessing of your home and show your kids our gifts of real gold, frankincense, and myrrh. This is a great chance to get to know other parishioners and guests and celebrate together as a community. If you are new to the Family of Four Parishes or just haven’t gotten involved yet, this is a wonderful place to meet new people and join in the life of the community, or to simply grab a treat and soak in the joy. Questions? Want to lend a hand with set up, clean up, or bringing a treat? Please contact Anh Clausen at *protected email*. We look forward to celebrating with all of you! ... See MoreSee Less
