I welcome you to our parish website. Holy Rosary Catholic Church is a Roman Catholic parish of the Diocese of Jefferson City. Located in the northeast Missouri town of Monroe City, this parish was founded in 1884 and has a strong history and tradition in the area due to the vibrant faith and enthusiasm of its people, journeying through life accompanied with our Risen Lord. It is my hope that this website will be both welcoming and educational regarding our parish and its history throughout the years.
Whether you are a member of the parish or surfing the net, I request your prayers for the continued efforts of our parish in bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to those whom the Lord has called us to serve. I also invite and encourage you to contact any member of the parish staff or myself if we can be of service to you or answer any questions you may have regarding the faith. May the Lord bless you and may the Lord bless all of us as we seek to promote His Kingdom and His Name as He has called us to.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
The Reverend Michael W. Penn, Pastor
