Welcome to Saint Rose

St. Rose Altar on Easter 2018

Welcome to St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Quincy, IL. St. Rose was re-opened on November 9, 2008, to provide the Latin Mass for Catholics in Quincy and the surrounding area. Bishop George Lucas of the Springfield, Illinois, diocese appointed Fr. Arnaud Devillers of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter as chaplain. St. Rose is the first church in the Springfield diocese to resume the traditional Latin Mass since Pope Benedict the Sixteenth's Summorum Pontificum in 2007 ensured its availability.

Requiescat in Pace

One of our dear parishioners, Kay Penrose, died on Sept. 7th. Kay has been an active member of our parish since it opened in 2008 and will be sadly missed. Please pray for the repose of her soul and keep her family in your prayers. Her obituary may be found here.

Thank you to all who helped with providing food for the funeral luncheon and for all those who helped in any way with the dinner. Thank you also to our choir and altar servers whose presence made it possible to have a Requiem High Mass.

Eternal rest grant unto Kay, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
