Married Couple Monthly Date Night at St. Rose – Drinks, Dessert and Discussion – begins July 15, 2017

These are difficult questions to discuss in our culture. We live in a society that supports the opinion that each person should make up his or her own morality—that there is no moral truth that applies to everyone. Many of us have been affected by the relativistic outlook that pervades the modern world. Maybe some of us wonder whether there really is an absolute right and wrong for everyone. Or maybe we accept that there is a moral standard for all, but we don’t know how to explain our moral convictions in a convincing way. Maybe some of us are afraid of saying something is immoral because we’re afraid of offending others or of being labeled intolerant. How do we talk about morality in a relativistic world? In this small group study program featuring Edward Sri, we’ll explore the classical Catholic view of morality and find that it’s not merely a set of guiding principles for theoretical situations—it is an entire way of life.

FORMAT: FORMED™ Video Presentation of “Whom Am I to Judge?” by Dr. Edward Sri, followed by Group Discussion with Wine & Desserts

Jesus the Healer – The Mystery Players – March 31, 2017

Friday March 31, 2017 – 8:00PM  St. Rose Church

“Jesus the Healer” written by Father Francis Pompei OFM, a Franciscan Friar from Holy Name Province, is a dramatic, multi-media presentation of the Passion and Death of the Lord and healing events in His life.

“Jesus the Healer” has no speaking parts. Through the use of special lighting, inspirational music, drama and soul-searching meditations, the play helps people get in touch with their goodness, struggles and sins. In a very unique way the play becomes a prayerful vehicle for the Lord’s spirit to forgive, renew and especially heal.
