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 Liturgical Music at each of our six weekend Masses. Under a General Leadership from our Director of Music Ministry, Juan Carlos Paz, each Choir has its unique leadership. The 4pm Saturday Mass is under the direction of Juan Carlos Paz. Saturday 6:00 pm Mass is under the direction of Salvador Hernandez. The Sunday 8:00 am Mass is under the direction of Emily Myers, the Spanish Choir at the 10:00 am mass on Sunday is under the direction of Gil Hernandez.
