Bulletin Sponsors Needed!
First, thank you to each of our present advertisers and for renewing their ads thereby supporting the parish. It is through their generosity that the bulletin is offered free to the community and read by hundreds of people each weekend and is available online. This is an opportunity to secure a space to promote your business to our parishioners or a space in Memory of a loved one. For more information on placing an ad or in memory of a loved one, go to www.diocesan.com. Fellow parishioners can also support the bulletin by supporting the advertisers and letting them know how they learned about the company in question. Thank you again to all our advertisers!
Coming from different backgrounds and from across the area, we gather to worship and glorify God with the reverent celebration of the Mass, the sacraments, and the venerable traditions of our Catholic faith. Faithful to the Magisterium and our love of God and neighbor, we strive to live and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We gratefully return to God all that He has given us by using our gifts and talents to build up His Church, support our parish family, and welcome all who yearn for Christ.
Holy Rosary Parish was founded by the Dominican Friars in 1913 when they were invited by Bishop Nicholas A. Gallagher to serve the needs of 125 families living in what was then Houston’s south side.
Young Ault Faith Study
All ages are welcome to join the Young Adults as they learn more about the Mass with the able assistance of Bishop Robert Barron. Watch videos and have discussions about how to make the Mass more meaningful to you.
This class takes place in the parish library on Wednesdays. Come together as one to understand the gif t of the Mass more deeply and better understand why do we go to Mass at all. See you at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays in the parish hall library!

Music in Worship
My dear friends in Christ, I am thrilled to be working for a parish I have grown to love through the years. I would like to encourage all in attendance to participate in the Liturgy as fully as you are able, particularly with regard to music. Please consider what the USCCB offers here:
"The Church is always at prayer in her ministers and her people, and that prayer takes various forms in her life. Authentic sacred music supports the Church's prayer by enriching its elements.."
- Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship, §15
Holy Rosary's excellent standard of liturgical music is a legacy which must be preserved, and I will make every effort to preserve and improve on what I have inherited. Please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
Yours in Christ,
Matthew Lydick, Interim Liturgical Music Coordinator
