2021 Rose Day of Giving Presentations

From our homes to yours, we bring the spirit of St. Rose of Lima to you through these testimonials that are straight from the heart. Listen to the words of our parents, students, alumni and teachers – as they share what it’s like to be part of the St. Rose of Lima family.

Help us reach our goal of $70,000! Because this is a virtual event, 100 percent of dollars raised will directly support St. Rose of Lima students. You’ll continue to have the opportunity to help us reach our goal this week by donating online, via mail or phone. You can also shop off of our Amazon wish list. Thank you for your support!

Main Presentation: The Hill We Climb

“When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it
If only we’re brave enough to be it”
