Church of the Holy Rosary

Holy Rosary Parish Mission

Make plans to join our Holy Rosary Parish Community for fellowship and a chance to grow in your faith at our upcoming mission Aug 15 -17.

God created each of us to have a deep and personal relationship with Himself. His desire is to speak to the depths of our hearts if only we would take the time to listen.

Please join us for our parish mission as Fr. Mark Nolte teaches us some important keys to hearing God’s voice as well as some of the obstacles that may prevent us from doing so.

The Knights of Columbus will be serving a spaghetti dinner on Sunday to kick off the mission and childcare will be provided all three nights for children ages 2- 10 years old. You will also have an opportunity to get a free updated headshot or family photo during the dinner/fellowship portion on Sunday.

Please be sure to RSVP below so we can make plans.

Give the gift of life: Red Cross Blood Drive August 1st

Holy Rosary Church will be hosting a blood drive for the American Red Cross on Sunday, August 1st, from 8:00 am-12:30 pm, in the dining hall.

PLEASE consider being a blood donor and give the gift of life. The American Red Cross is currently experiencing a severe blood shortage. Everyone who donates blood on this day will be eligible for a drawing, and one person will win a $10.00 Target gift card.

Call Michelle at 615-473-3185 with any questions about the blood drive.

Signing up to donate blood for this blood drive is easy, just use this link.

After clicking on the Red Cross link, select the “SEE TIMES” button to see available time slots.

33 Days to Morning Glory

Join us as we consecrate ourselves to Jesus through Mary using the book 33 Days to Morning Glory.  We will begin the week of August 10th after the Tuesday evening Mass, and consecrate ourselves on the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary on September 12th. 

The video program is available and the participant workbooks can all be printed from the FORMED website but you will need to purchase the book which is about $15. 

It is recommended that even if you have consecrated yourself to Mary once, you complete the process again.  There is always something new to learn, and the support received in the group helps maintain your focus and helps your growth.

Please register by August 3rd by calling the Church office or by emailing Jan at janstermin@gmail.com with any questions. 

Welcome New Parishioners!

Because of Totus Tuus, daily masses for the upcoming week will be at 9 am and there is no Tuesday evening mass.
There will also be a potluck dinner at 5 pm on Wednesday for the entire parish

If you are attending, please see below for a suggestion on what to bring along with beverages for your family:

Last names that begin with:

  • A-M : bring a side or “entree-like” item
  • N-Z : bring a dessert

Also, as an FYI… one of the missionaries cannot eat red meat and one is allergic to tree-nuts.

Hope you can make plans to join us!

The Chosen watch parties (canceled on Jun 13th only)

Update: Our watch party for Sunday the 13th is canceled due to a lack of sign-ups. Please share with your friends and family that sign-ups are still available and will continue as scheduled on June 20th and June 27th.

Hello, friends!

We are putting together another set of watch parties for the amazing series, The Chosen.

Please sign up here, and plan to bring a main dish OR a side and dessert to share. Drinks and paper products will be provided. We look forward to seeing you!

Please welcome our new Deacon!

Deacon Nonso

Please welcome our new deacon: Deacon Nonso Ohanaka.

He will reside with us this summer and plans on being a big help to Father Steiner while he is here with us. Keep him in your prayers, as he will be ordained to the priesthood next year!! Please make him feel at home and comfortable.

Hello, parishioners of Holy Rosary. My name is Deacon Nonso Ohanaka and I am incredibly happy to be with your community for the summer. I have been a seminarian for the diocese for the past six years and I grew up in Nashville. My family is from Nigeria and that is where I was born. I came to the U.S with my parents and siblings when I was five in 2001. We have lived in Nashville since. Most of my extended family is still in Nigeria. I am the oldest of five children: three boys and two girls. My full name is Chukwunonso, which means “God is near.” Being a priest is something that I have always been interested in since I was a little kid. I enjoy learning about how movies are made and I like to play sports. I look forward to getting to know you all.

In Christ, Deacon Nonso

Summer Bible Study program

Holy Rosary is pleased to offer a Bible Study Opportunity this summer.

The Bible Study Genesis to Jesus by the St. Paul Center will be offered twice a week, once in the morning and once in the evening. The evening session will begin on June 22nd, beginning after Mass (approx. 6:45) on Tuesdays, and the morning sessions will be offered beginning Thursday, June 24th at 9:00 am (after the 8:00 am Mass). Both groups will meet in the conference room in the Parish office.

This is a six-week study. We will order the participant workbooks. They can be purchased from the office for approximately 23.00 each.

There is a supplemental book, A Father Who Keeps His Promises, by Scott Hahn. This can be purchased by each participant if they choose to buy it.

For more information, please contact Jan Stermin: janstermin@gmail.com
