Mission Statement

The Rosary Society of Notre Dame embraces our threefold ministry:

  1. To promote veneration of and devotion to our Blessed Mother through recitation of the Rosary and meditation on its Mysteries,
    2. To provide charitable service to the parish community, and
    3. To cultivate an active faith-based social/service network of multi-generational and multicultural membership in the Rosary Society.

We reinforce our spiritual mission at each meeting. Our opening includes the Pledge of Allegiance and the recitation of a decade of the Rosary. After a brief business recap, various speakers and entertainers are scheduled throughout the year followed by a variety of refreshments and baked goods. Future ministry and social events are discussed for input from our members during these meetings.

The Rosary Society meets on the first Sunday of each month at the 10:30am Mass, after which we will gather in the school cafeteria for the scheduled meetings during our 2018-2019 service year.

2018-2019 Highlights

Retreat: A half-day annual Morning of Reflection is being scheduled to enhance our individual spirituality. We will look within ourselves, in stillness and silence, setting aside deadlines and obligations that dominate our daily lives.

Christmas Party: This year’s popular and well-enjoyed annual event, will be celebrated at Pompeii Restaurant on Saturday, December 8th. Members and guests are welcome to share an afternoon of Christmas cheer complete with prize raffles and our Winner-Take-Half drawing.

Annual Outing: Our annual outing, this year, will be a day-trip to the Shrine of Our Lady of the Island in the spring.

Fundraisers: These events are conducted throughout the year to support the spiritual and service missions of the parish.


Rosary Bulletin Post

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have the most need of your mercy.

Requested by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima


So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger.

Luke 2:16

We would like to thanks all who contributed to and attended our Christmas luncheon. We thank each table for
their beautiful baskets, our set-up elves, Josephine Sanges and John Cook for their amazing concert and sing along,
and Helen McGuire and Mary Molloy who brought it all together with their hard work.

We would like to give special acknowledgement and thanks to our local vendors who generously provided
donations for many of our raffles. Please support our donors as you shop.
