As deadlines for our upcoming Rose Gala are fast approaching, the decision has been made to move this year's event from an in-person to a virtual event.
We have decided to go virtual with an abundance of caution for our guests, sponsors and volunteers. Given that the current COVID Positivity Map color is red, it would be highly unlikely that we will move to an appropriate safety level to make our live event possible by the end of the month. The CDC states, "Gathering virtually or with the people you live with is the safest choice for large events."

We appreciate everyone's support of this heartfelt decision and hope you will participate in our virtual event in some way. Holy Rosary Parish and School continually pull together when we need you the most, and for this we are truly grateful.
