Silver Rose at the Parish

The Silver rose will be at the parish on May 25th. and the prayer service from 2:00 PM till 3:00 PM.    The rose will be at the 5:00 PM Mass.    The 5:00 PM mass will also be the  Mass for the Deceased Brothers of Council 6848.  

The journey of the Silver Rose begins each year in March and ends on December 12th, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  During that time, Silver Roses travel from town to town along eight routes throughout North America.  Several of those routes begin in Canada and end in Mexico.  The Silver Rose Program began in 1960 when the first rose - a real, live one - was blessed by the bishop of Ontario.  The rose then traveled to New York and then to Texas where it was taken across the border into Mexico.  The rose ended its pilgrimage at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Monterrey on Dec 12th, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  To better ensure future annual trips, a Silver Rose was ultimately made.  Today, due to the popularity of the program throughout the North American continent, eight Silver Roses travel unique routes.
