Dear Saint Rose Families,

Fr. Al presided at Mass this morning and spoke of the importance of gratitude.  I am sure that we all have heard of the suggestion to develop an "Attitude of Gratitude." I hope that you and your family have an opportunity to give thanks and fully appreciate your blessings over this Thanksgiving Break.

Family Service Event on December 2

During Advent and Christmas, we remember that the Holy Family was forced to leave its homeland.  They became refugees in a foreign land and depended on the kindness of others.   During December we will focus on the work of mercy, "Welcome the Stranger."

Global Connections in Bowling Green is an organization that welcomes people from other nations and fosters cultural exchanges and opportunities to Welcome the Stranger.   Many of the participants are international students or faculty members and families studying at the university.

On  Sunday, December 2,  Saint Rose families will host an Advent Event for members of Global Connections.   Together, our school families and members of Global Connections will enjoy crafts, activities, and food designed to promote cultural exchange and friendship and help to share our customs.

Please consider participating in this event on  Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1:30-3:30 pm in Bowling Green.  More details will be sent to those who register regarding location and activities.

Please click  here  to register your family to participate in this Advent Service Event to Welcome the Stranger.

3rd Grade Visits Sauder's Village

The third graders recently visited Sauder's Village.   They were able to see what school was like as well as chores at home.  They were able to help churn butter, cut noodles, and watch a goat being milked.  Miss Lewandowski, third grade teacher, said that the trip gave the students a glimpse into pioneer life.  The students also saw the Trading Post, General Store and Grist Mill.  All agreed that pioneer life was much more difficult than life now.

Athletic Director - CYO Athletics
Part-Time (time varies throughout the year)
Average of 10 hours/ week (5-20 hours during seasons)

This person should be organized, respected in the community, able to communicate effectively, mediate disputes and someone who cares about the well-being of the youth above all else. The AD ensures that the athletic programs are a part of the faith building efforts of the parish, are part of a comprehensive ministry to youth, and are within the programmatic guidelines of the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO). The AD is also responsible for:

I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all who have supported me these past four years as St. Rose Parish Athletic Director. Due to personal reasons, I will be stepping down from the Athletic Director position. I have thoroughly enjoyed the many positive moments serving as minister to the youth in our CYO sports programs as well as serving alongside the many coaches and commissioners who spend countless hours giving of their time and knowledge of their individual sport. I intend to assist the parish staff in transitioning a new Athletic Director into the position.

Saint Rose School theme for the year:

Love Life!

November's theme is End of Life Issues -- 
Death, Euthanasia, and the Death Penalty

As the liturgical year draws to a conclusion, the church focuses on the "end time" as we start the month with the Feast of All Saints and All Souls.

This month we will focus on End of Life Issues -- Death, Sacrament of the Sick, Euthanasia, and the Death Penalty.

The Vatican has recently clarified its teaching on the Death Penalty.  Please CLICK  HERE for an EWTN interview that explains the Church's teaching.

Saint Rose Peace and Justice Committee promotes restitution from and conversion of death row inmates with a publication called "Compassion."  Death row inmates write articles and poems for the publication.  Proceeds from the sales of the publication are donated to the victims' families.

Charity of the month:  
Saint Rose Cemetery Fund
(began by the school children two years ago)

This fund will be used to help with burial costs in the Saint Rose Cemetery for families with financial difficulties.  This is a corporal work of mercy to "Bury the Dead".  

Please encourage your children to be generous in their donations 
at the weekly school Masses.

In the wake of the last 2 hurricanes, we had to cancel over 200 blood drives in their paths, accounting for over 7200 pints of blood that went uncollected.  The red Cross is going into the holiday season with an expectation to be 124,000 pints of blood short by January. Currently, there is less than a 3 day supply at our hospitals.  Please donate if you are able.  For eligibility questions call 866-236-3276.
