HELP OUR FLOODED PARISHIONERS
HELP OUR FLOODED PARISHIONERS
The "Holy Rosary Flood Relief Fund" has been established to help our parishioners! Click on Give Online with WeShare below for more information. Many of our families have been devastated by flood waters and have experienced severe property damage. At the same time, many of our kind family and friends have approached us, asking how to contribute to help those who were affected. The "Holy Rosary Flood Relief Fund" has been established to help our parishioners! As funds become available, our parish will assess the needs and provide support accordingly. Thank you for your generosity!
UPDATED MASS SCHEDULE FOR AUGUST 27TH-SEPTEMBER 2ND
Due to carpet needing to be removed and the Church floor being dried out we will be relocating all masses this weekend, August 27th & 28th to the Lake Chapel on Lake Martin Rd. There is limited parking at the Lake Chapel so please be patient and try to carpool to mass if possible. Our community needs to come together more now than ever before so it's important to gather to worship no matter the inconvenience. Also, in order to allow adequate time to dry we will be moving Monday Communion service and daily masses, August 29th-September 2nd, to the Lake Chapel. Thank You.
Holy Rosary Parish Flood Update
First and foremost, we want our Church family to know that we understand what you are going through and we want to help you through this time of need. Here is an update to the status of the Church campus. We do have a crew cleaning and gutting at this time. All buildings on the premises have had some degree of damage from the floods, except the Adoration Chapel. The Adult Education building received minimal damage, the baseboards and carpet have been pulled up. The administration building received more significant damage with walls, carpet, desks and more. The bottom floor of the rectory held water and the Parish Center received 2 and half feet of water.
As you may have noticed we have not been operating at 100%. Some of our staff members have sustained flood damage as well. We are in the process of moving our offices into the front of the rectory temporarily. We should be up and running in the next couple of days. The Parish staff along with Deacon John Veron and Father Jamin David came together to put together a plan to allow us to help our parishioners that have been affected by the recent floods.
If you have a particular need (food, water, man/woman power, etc.), please message the Holy Rosary Facebook Page, or call the Parish Office (if able). If you are a parishioner who has not been affected and are willing to help in any way possible, send a message in one of the aforementioned ways and tell us how you can help.
All scheduled meetings, Religious Education classes and Adoration at Holy Rosary are postponed until further notice.
Due to the condition of the Church buildings and facilities we are partnering with St. Mark's to accept and distribute donations (new items and no clothing). If you have donations to drop off or if you need supplies please check with St. Mark Catholic Church at 42021 Highway 621 Gonzales, LA 70737 or call the Parish office at 225-647-8461.
