We welcome Deacon John Lawson and Veronica to Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Parish

The Mexican American Catholic College, a pioneer in bilingual higher education with an emphasis in pastoral and Hispanic ministry, welcomes a diverse group of students. Priests, seminarians, ordained deacons, deacon candidates, religious, and anyone interested in learning Spanish or English, are often sent by their Bishops, superiors, and lay leaders to attend MACC’s Intensive Language Courses for effective service in the community. 

MACC is inviting to participate in our intensive Spanish, and English Courses in the summer 2022 in San Antonio, Texas. We appreciate your kind support to promote our Summer Language Courses among your parish community by distributing the attached flyers, and/or during the announcements at mass to offer the opportunity to improve your parishioner’s language skills.

A Letter from Father Victor Valdez, Pastor St. Rose of Lima

Dear brothers and sisters,

We are so grateful for your faithful support of St. Rose of Lima.

It gives me great joy to say that this year we have a total of 45 catechumens and candidates who are in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) process. They have been journeying with eagerness, hope, and a desire to be fully initiated into the Church. They have been learning to become stewards and to live out their stewardship within our parish community.

And they are not alone. We have all been on a journey of becoming good stewards and living our own stewardship. We are witness of this stewardship that has not wavered even in the midst of challenge and struggle. And what a blessing it is as more and more people are returning to Mass and engaging in our church activities and functions.

We are looking forward to this next year with faith and hope knowing that God is always in our midst. We have been able to continue our mission at St. Rose because of your generosity and love for our amazing parish. This Christmas season, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and anticipate his second coming, I invite you to continue living your gift of stewardship. Please pray about making a year-end gift to our continuing mission – it’s as easy as donating on-line at , at the weekend collection, or in-person at our parish office.

Your generosity and support are greatly appreciated.


Fr. Victor Valdez

Queridos hermanos y hermanas:

Estamos muy agradecidos por su fiel apoyo a Santa Rosa de Lima.

Me da mucha alegría decir que este año tenemos un total de 45 catecúmenos y candidatos que están en el proceso de RICA (Rito de Iniciación Cristiana para Adultos). Han estado disfrutando del trayecto con entusiasmo, esperanza y un deseo de ser completamente iniciados en la Iglesia. Han estado aprendiendo a convertirse en buenos administradores y a vivir su corresponsabilidad dentro de nuestra comunidad parroquial.

Y no están solos. Todos hemos estado en un viaje de convertirnos en buenos administradores y vivir nuestra propia corresponsabilidad. Somos testigos de que esta corresponsabilidad no ha flaqueado ni siquiera en medio del desafío y la lucha. Y qué bendición es a medida que más y más personas regresan a misa y participan en nuestras actividades y funciones de la iglesia.

Esperamos este próximo año con fe y esperanza sabiendo que Dios siempre está en medio de nosotros. Hemos podido continuar nuestra misión en St. Rose debido a su generosidad y amor por nuestra increíble parroquia. Esta temporada, al celebrar el nacimiento de Jesús y anticipando su segunda venida, los invito a continuar su regalo de corresponsabilidad. Por favor oren sobre hacer una donación de fin de año, para nuestra misión continua, es fácil hacer una donación en línea en ,en colecta del fin de semana, o en persona en nuestra oficina parroquial.

Su generosidad y apoyo es gratamente apreciado.


Fr. Victor Valdez
