ST. ROSE SERVICE LEAGUE
The St. Rose Service League is an organization open to any interested parishioner of any age. Our primary function is to be of service to the parish as needed and requested.
Usual service duties include, but are not limited to, the following;
Offer funeral meals for those parish families requesting them. Includes shopping, preparing, serving and clean-up needed in accordance with the menu as selected by the family. (Cost is limited to the price of the food plus small gratuity for table service)
Provide a Christmas Bazaar in early December for the children of St. Rose School, allowiing them the opportunity to shop for useful but inexpensive gifts for their family members. Includes gift wrapping and labeling each gift.
Construct holiday gift bags of personal items for parishioners of St. Rose living in nursing homes or who are house bound, in accordance with the shut-in list provided by the church office.
Prepare and serve refreshments for various church and school social functions as needed and/or requested.
(i.e. Fr. Dave's birthday bash, etc.)
Last year the League collected and/or provided items for holiday gift bags for each of the service persons being treated at the Dayton Veteran's Hospital, and are planning to do this again in the spring.
In the previous year the League organized a project to collect and send approximately 75 boxes of needed toiletries to soldiers serving in Afghanistan.
Anyone interested in joining the Service League is urged to call the church office for more information or to join.
