Meeting after Mass on Sunday, May 1st

April 28, 2022

Join us for a meeting after 9 am Mass on Sunday, May 1, 2022 in Campion Hall.

We will be discussing the Real Presence, Real Future Draft 2 models. In these models, the Diocese is proposing that Holy Rosary-St. John be merged with another church (at that church’s site).

We want to discuss other possibilities that we can explore and suggest to the Diocese, but we cannot do it without parishioner involvement.

This is a very important meeting. If you care about the future of the parish, please attend. If you cannot be there, you are also welcome to provide feedback by emailing hrsjevents@gmail.com or by calling (614) 252-5926, ext. 7.
Hope to see everyone on May 1st after Mass!

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MEETING IS FOR HRSJ PARISHIONERS (OR FORMER PARISHIONERS WHO WANT TO GET ACTIVE AGAIN) ONLY.

Martin Luther King Day Celebration on January 17th at Noon

December 28, 2021

Holy Rosary-St. John Church Celebrates the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Andrea Pannell, OPA

The Community of Holy Rosary & St. John the Evangelist is hosting its annual Martin Luther King Day celebration on Monday, January 17, 2022 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Holy Rosary-St. John Church, 660 South Ohio Avenue (between Main and Livingston), Columbus, Ohio. The guest speaker is Andrea C. Pannell, OPA. Everyone is welcome!

Andrea Pannell is the Vice President of Stewardship for The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Columbus. Before joining The Catholic Foundation, Andrea served as the Director of Development and Planning for the Diocese of Columbus. She also serves on the Diocesan Ethnic Ministries Board and its Hope Task Force.

Andrea is a Dominican Sisters of Peace Associate and a Spiritual Director. She is also a member of St. Dominic Catholic Church where she is active with the Bakhita Dance Ministry, the Gospel Choir, and is chairperson of the stewardship committee.

An engaging and energetic speaker, retreat leader, and writer, Andrea believes “Your ability to love and to be loved is key to having it all” and credits “our ‘Love Limits’ as sizing us for the cement boots that keep us stuck in places of disappointment, disengagement and dysfunction.”

Holy Rosary-St. John has been celebrating Martin Luther King Day every year since the holiday was established in 1986. Vernon Hairston will be directing the gospel choir during the celebration. For additional information, email hrsjevents@gmail.com or call (614) 252-5926, ext. 7.

Merry Christmas!
