Welcome to Saint Rose of Lima Parish!

Mission Statement:
Be a friend of Jesus, Make a Friend, Introduce your friend to Jesus.

Our Parish
St. Rose of Lima Parish was founded in 1848 to care for the Irish immigrants who were settling in the town of Meriden.  After 166 years, it still maintains a prominent and vital presence within the community.  With the influx of other cultures, the parish continues to provide spiritual guidance and support of our sisters and brothers who have come to make the town of Meriden, the State of Connecticut, the United States of America, their home. 

We are a multicultural community dedicated to providing a welcoming and faith-filled experience for all who wish to worship in the Roman Catholic Rite of Christianity.  Our Mission statement (above) reminds us to never lose heart in our faith endeavors.  Our Mission statement reflects the spirit of St. Rose of Lima: "Live the Moment for God."

Thank you for visiting us at St. Rose of Lima and may God give you the Peace of Christ, always.
