Holy Rosary Catholic Church





Just as a building has doors, so to our mind and hearts have 'doors' as well. Open yours as you step within these doors to explore the wonders of this beautiful Church dedicated to Our Lady.



What an awesome and inspiring

HISTORY

Reference-Holy Rosary Catholic Church web site





The sense of the Holy Presence is felt in the quiet, reverent atmosphere to be found here.



Some beautiful art work is beheld in the eyes (windows) of this church









As you enter the nave of the Church the first thing that catches your heart is the cross of our Lord .
All Catholic Churches have an 'assent' or steps leading up to the altar. This is suggestive of so many elements in sacred history as well as the call to us all to 'ascend' toward heaven by seeking to live holy lives.




The Bible and the Lord's Supper









When the faithful are nourished by the Eucharist, they are called to share that grace as light to the world.





"Why Catholics Pray The Rosary"





"Take My yoke upon your shoulders and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble of Heart."-Mt 11:28





Mary and The Bible









This statue of Jesus and His sacred heart is calling to you with open arms.
In honoring the Heart of Christ, our homage lingers on the Person of Jesus in fullness of His love.



St. Jude



St. Anthony



"For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy." - Saint Therese of Lisieux



Icons representing the 14 Stations of the Cross surround the nave. These are a work of art in their simplicity and beauty. As we look upon these works of art our hearts and minds should be drawn to God in prayer.









Time is a constant in all our lives as Jesus should be the center of our time.



New church model



In any of these photos, or in your next visit to a church - stop, look and listen. Ponder the Cross. Pray to hear what the Lord might be saying to you through a Station of the Cross, a picture or statue of His blessed Mother, an angel or saint. What do you see in their eyes? Do you see a look of humility? Are their feet bare or in sandals? Every statue or photo can have an amazing richness of messages. This is why, for centuries, the Church used sacred art to teach the people - especially before reading became common. Today, when the graphic arts have become powerful means of influencing people, isn't it fitting that we look to spiritual art to inspire us to lead lives pleasing to God?
