Hope For Haitians

 

Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Covering an area of 10,714 square miles, this island nation is slightly smaller than the state of Maryland. Haiti is as close to us as San Francisco and it is closer to Florida than Washington D.C. is. They are our neighbors, yet the reality of the living conditions for the nearly ten million Haitian people is worlds apart from anything we know. The Lent, our Hope for Haitians Committee is fundraising to help the Pope Francis Friendship Village in the Dumas, Haiti area. We hope to raise enough funds to purchase 40 lanterns at a cost of $125 each as well as raise money to build a cassava bakery and grinder. Our children will raise funds to educate the children in the area. This fundraiser begins next weekend, March 8, 2014. Stop by our table in the lobby to pick up a donation envelope.

Diocese of Rockford Youth Summit 2013





 

Rev. Richard A. Rosinski

 

My dear People of St. Thomas More Parish,

It is with thanks to God and gratitude to Bishop Malloy that I begin my assignment as Pastor of this parish. New beginnings are always filled with many questions and uneasiness about the future, but with God's help, we all will settle in and grow as we begin this journey together.

To give you a little info about myself…I was born to Richard and Antoinette Rosinski on Chicago’s SW side in the summer of 1963. The fifth of six children; I have one brother and four sisters, two of whom still live in Cary. My early education was through the public school system in Cary, Illinois, where I graduated from Cary-Grove High School in 1981 and then began my college education at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. I completed my undergraduate work with a B.A. in History and Philosophy. It was at that point in my life that I continued my exploration of the priesthood. I entered St. Mary Seminary and University in Baltimore, Maryland, in the fall of 1987 and completed my formation in 1991, earning my S.T.B. and my M. Div. degrees. I was ordained to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ on May 18, 1991, at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Rockford by the Most Rev. Arthur J. O’Neill; who was the same bishop who had Confirmed me years earlier. Since my ordination 22 years ago I have served several parishes in our Diocese including: St. Bridget of Erin, Loves Park; St. Mary, DeKalb; St. Edward, Rockford; St. Anne, Dixon (my first pastorate); St. Catherine of Siena, Dundee; St. Mary, Gilberts; and St. John Neumann, St. Charles -- where I have been pastor since July 2007.

Through the years, I have had the privilege of serving on many diocesan committees including the joy of being one of the instructors within the Ministry Formation program. In 2001, I was given one of the greatest honors of my life when I was invited to become a member of the Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem -- an ancient order -- main purpose is to support and maintain the Holy Land and the Christians living there.

 

As we begin this new part of our faith journey together, I look forward to learning more about you and sharing prayer, worship, song and laughter with all of you as we work to build up the Kingdom of God in this part of His Vineyard.

Peace always,

 

Fr. Rich


 

Reverend Richard A. Rosinski was installed as our pastor by Bishop Malloy on Sept 1, 2013. He is our ninth pastor.
