When you become a member of St. Rose of Lima, we encourage you to become more involved in the Parish by volunteering in a Liturgical Ministry. Training is offered for each Ministry, and when you are more involved in a Ministry, the Mass becomes more meaningful for you.
St. Rose of Lima Parish is blessed with choirs at each of our five weekend masses. The choirs at the Saturday 5:00 pm Sunday 9:00 & 11:00 am masses are under the direction of Chris Urrutia, Music Director. The Spanish Choir at the 1:00 pm mass on Sunday is under the direction of Gil Hernandez, and the 6 pm mass on Sunday is under the direction of Francine Stotler. All choirs welcome new members, both singers & instrumentalists, who wish to join them. You may contact the choir director of the mass you choose to attend.
