About Us

Dear Friends of Saint Rose of Lima,

It is with great joy that I welcome you to our St. Rose of Lima Parish website.

We, the parish of Saint Rose of Lima are a warm, loving family nourished by the Eucharist in the celebration of Holy Mass and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. As a multi-cultural people, together we form an icon of Jesus to the Rockaway community.

With a  firm commitment to do the will of God, we both support and challenge each other to live our lives of faith, hope and charity; therefore living out our baptismal call to witness  and evangelize the Gospel through our words and actions.

We invite you to be part of the Saint Rose of Lima Family.
