All non-sacramental parish activities are also cancelled. This includes Stations of the Cross.

Confessions will still be heard during the normal times. Keep six-foot distance between penitents and use wet wipes which will be provided to sanitize any area you touch, including the door and ledge in the confessional. Also clean any part of a pew that you touch.

We have asked for clarification from the Diocese regarding Exposition and Benediction. There will definitely not be Exposition on Thursday, March 19th.

St. Rose will be open for people to come pray privately from dawn until dusk. Please use the entrance on the north side (facing the rectory). All other doors will remain locked. Hand sanitation items will be made available.
