 Fourth Sunday of Easter

We can trust Jesus to take us to the Father.  Four our part, we must learn to look beyond the narrow confines within which we tend to locate those who belong to Jesus.

What boundaries have you set up that need to be knocked down so that all will be welcomed "into the fold"?

St. Rose Parish officially came into existence in 1940.  It was originally the chapel of St. Patrick's Home for Children, built in 1932 (hence the small size). It was also named in honor of St. Rose of Lima and was the first Catholic Church in Sacramento (1849).  Today our parish celebrates 14 masses every Sunday, each with a "full house." Along with this, we also celebrate weekday masses, sharing our church with St. Patrick's Academy, adult religous education (R.C.I.A.), and youth religous education (C.C.D.).
