Dear Parishioners and Visitors,
Our new Pastor, Father Jorge Rativa, O.P., will begin at Holy Rosary Parish as of September 1. He has been approved by His Eminence Daniel Cardinal DiNardo and the Southern Dominican Provincial, Fr. Tom Condon, O.P., along with his Council.
Fr. Jorge has completed his excellent ministry as Vicar Provincial and Socius of our Southern Dominican Province of St. Martin de Porres. I have known Fr. Jorge for several years and he is a most pastoral and prayerful Dominican priest who also is fluent in the administrative realities. Originally from the beautiful South American country of Colombia, Fr. Jorge brings many gifts as a fine and good shepherd wherever he is called. He will delight in your most welcoming ways.
My term as Pastor of Holy Rosary Church ended on July 31, 2017. Fr. Alberto Rodriguez, O.P., is now the Administrator of Holy Rosary Parish until the arrival of our new Pastor.
Please pray for Fr. Jorge, Fr. Alberto, and Fr. Tran as they shepherd our remarkable community here at Holy Rosary in our great Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Know that I am continuing to pray for you in deep gratitude for guiding me in all the graces God has bestowed upon each of you. Grazie tanto!
Joyous Sunday of the Transfiguration of the Lord,
- Fr. Chris, 0.P
