These are some of the giving and faithful charitable organizations with whom Holy Rosary partners in ministering to those in need in our community:

The Salvation Army is an integral part of the Christian Church, although distinctive in government and practice. The Army’s doctrine follows the mainstream of Christian belief and its articles of faith emphasize God’s saving purposes.
