A Message from Father

frAaronAs Pastor of Saint Rose Catholic Church in Mount Vernon Kansas, let me extend a warm welcome to you as you visit our Parish Website. At St. Joseph in Ost, we see Jesus Christ as our foundation; and we strive to proclaim, teach and share the Good News of Jesus Christ within our community, and beyond. It is our parish members who make our parish what it is. We are a parish family that is striving to follow the call of our Lord, and we live this out through the stewardship way of life that is fostered here in the Diocese of Wichita. Our prayer is that God will help our Church Family to realize everyday how gifted we are, and work to share these gifts in love of God and neighbor.

Please explore our website. We have information for almost every aspect of our parish. We welcome you to our parish family. If you are new, we ask that you check us out. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Parish Office at 316-444-2210. Thank you for visiting and May God bless and keep you always close to His Most Sacred Heart.

St. Joseph, Husband of Mary, Pray for us!

Fr. Aaron Spexarth

Parochial Administrator of St. Rose in Mt. Vernon
