A Higher Purpose Spread devotion to Our Lady and pray for our brothers and sisters of faith who are at risk around the world through the Marian Prayer Program. As the new Marian image is brought on pilgrimage, Holy Rosary will host the Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians icon for a prayer service starting at 6:30 PM on May 28th. This Prayer Service is for the entire parish.
Overview The 2018-2019 Marian Prayer Program presents the 18th Marian image sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, this time of Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians. Each Knights of Columbus jurisdiction receives several Marian images, which serve as the centerpieces for prayer services conducted in churches and council meeting places throughout the Order for the duration of the initiative. Since its inception in 1979, the Knights of Columbus’ Marian Prayer Program has held more than 166,900 local council and parish prayer services with some 20 million participants. This year, the prayer service is intended to raise awareness of the plight of Christians persecuted for their faith and to stand in prayerful solidarity with them.

Please join us as we host our annual Holy Rosary Mass and Lenten Fish Fry night. To give parishioners time to travel from the Church after Stations of the Cross, we will begin Mass around 6:30 PM at the K of C Hall. A fish fry dinner will follow Mass. We will host Mass and dinner each night of Lent through April 12. We will not host Mass and dinner on Good Friday.
Please remember to call the club (615-883-4972) if you want red snapper. Limited quantities available.
Holy Rosary is doing a food drive during Lent this year. It is called 40 Cans for Lent. The idea is simple. Your family commits to bringing 1 can, or other non-perishable food item, of food for each day of Lent. All food collected will go directly to our local Second Harvest Food Bank and benefit people in the Donelson and Hermitage areas. Please consider bringing at least a few items each week. There are Second Harvest Food Bank collection boxes at the back of church in the narthex. There are additional boxes at the Knights of Columbus hall if you are headed over there. Please be generous and help refill our local food bank now the holiday season is over!
Knights of Columbus 4972 would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest brothers, Ryan King, David McCullars, John Taylor, and Cameron Wagner! We are excited and fortunate to have them as part of our Council. Please join us in congratulating them on taking this first step on their journey in the Knight of Columbus.
Being a Knight of Columbus represents a common bond in our devotion to the Catholic faith and our brotherhood in Christ. We have joined together to help one another become better Catholics, better husbands, better fathers, better providers for the financial protection of our families and better citizens of the countries in which we live. If this is sounds like something that would benefit you and your family, please talk to any of the current members of the Knight of Columbus to learn more.
We are pleased to announce, that with Fr Daniel Steiner’s permission, your Knights of Columbus Council 4972 has made a new series of free educational materials available to all members and guests of Holy Rosary Catholic Church called Building the Domestic Church.
Building the Domestic Church series is a collection of popular books produced by the Catholic Information Service (CIS) focused on issues of vital importance for Catholic families seeking to build up and strengthen the church at home.
Again, these books are free, and we invite you to take some home for you and your family to read. You are also welcome to take some to share with a friend or neighbor that could benefit from these books. These books are available in both English and Spanish.
Look for these new displays at the back of church next time you are there. We hope you enjoy these resources and find them helpful to you and your family!
On October 2, 1881, Father Michael J. McGivney brought men of his parish together to unite men of Catholic faith and to provide for the families of deceased members. A few months later on February 6, 1882 the Knights of Columbus was born and has continued this mission set forth by Father McGivney.
Join us this Saturday for a free event presented by Stephen Regan. There is no cost or obligation. Everyone from the parish is invited – bring your spouse and kids. Whether you are a current member of the Knights of Columbus or not, please take advantage of this opportunity to learn if any of these benefits are right for you and your family.
