This committee assists the Pastor, Father Dan Steiner, with the development and execution of activities that support the liturgical life and spiritual growth of the parish. The committee meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6 pm. The Chair and Vice Chair also attend the Parish Council meeting every month.

The goal is to deepen our personal relationship with God, promoting understanding of what it means to respond to our baptismal call through worship and living the gospel. The Spirituality Committee strives to lead Holy Rosary’s faith community into a fuller, richer relationship with God by providing living, dynamic Eucharistic experiences, and other opportunities for prayer expressions that offer fitting praise to God.

 Adoration
 Stations of the Cross

 Reconciliation services
