Join the choir!

At Our Lady and St. Rose, we praise God with joyful song! We take great pride in our Gospel choir, which graciously ministers to us every Sunday at our 11:00am Mass. Come and worship with us and feel the spirit of God alive and well!

Our Lady and St. Rose Gospel choir is directed by Ms. Lorraine Long. The choir practices every Tuesday night at 6:30pm and sings every Sunday at Mass. Enter the church at the chapel door on the south side. If you are interested in joining, call Barbara Bailey for more details: (913) 321-1958.

Volunteer in the community
In the spirit of Matthew 25:35, help us to feed the hungry at the Willa Gill Center (the Food Kitchen). Our church community volunteers to help serve lunch the first Tuesday of every month at the Center, located at 645 Nebraska Avenue, Kansas City, KS 66101.
