Rosary Altar Society 
The Rosary Altar Society Mission

With devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, we are committed to praying the Rosary for world peace and the spiritual benefit of all peoples.  

As Rosarians, we have a special privilege of ministering to the care of the Altar, preparing linens and assisting with decorations for holidays and special events.  We also conduct fundraisers and participate in other activities as needed for the benefit of the Church.

The Rosary Altar Society offers a deeper connection to the church for all and provides a forum to meet, discuss and participate in current events at our Church.

Please join us at our first meeting on

Sunday, March 4th, in the Cass Center, after the 10:00 a.m. Mass 

Refreshments will be served & we will discuss upcoming events for the season.
