Welcome to our new pastor, Msgr. Michael Becker and our new secretary, Becky Reed!

As noted in our June 27th parish bulletin, Msgr. Becker writes, "I would like to welcome to our parish staff Becky Reed, who will be serving at the front desk of the parish. Her hours will typically be 9 AM to 1 PM. Telephone calls after those hours will be forwarded to my staff at St. John's. Thank you for your patience as we make these adjustments. Those who wish to contact me directly can reach me at St. John's (814) 942-5503 or leave messages with Becky at our front desk. Becky has been a long time parishioner here at St. Rose, and was very active in secretarial work at our school."

Spiritual Communion

With Masses not open to the public, if you watch online or on the television the following prayer can be offered to connect yourself to the Eucharistic celebration or at anytime you want to receive Christ spiritually:

My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.

Novena to St. Rocco Against Contagious Diseases
Prayed for Nine Days

O Great St. Rocco, deliver us,
we beseech thee, from contagious diseases.

Through thy intercession,
preserve our bodies from illness,
and our souls from the contagion of sin.

Obtain for us salubrious air, but,
above all, purity of heart.

Assist us to make good use of health,
to bear suffering with patience,
and, after thy example,
to live in the practice of penance and charity,
that we may one day enjoy the happiness
which thou has merited by thy virtues.

St. Rocco, pray for us – 3 times.
