Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT OF HOLY ROSARY CHURCH We, the Roman Catholic family of Holy Rosary Church, staffed by the Missionaries of St. Charles founded by the Blessed John Baptist Scalabrini, who saw migration as both a universal and permanent phenomenon that nurtures the global family, are a parish historically rooted in ministry to Italians and all Catholics on the move in the Greater Washington, D.C. Area. Empowered by the Gospel, we bring Jesus to each other and to all we meet by ministering to the spiritual, physical, social and cultural needs of our diverse community.  In a welcoming environment, we celebrate the Eucharist, pray and work together under the protection of Our Lady of the Rosary.  Through evangelization, education and acculturation, we are committed to sharing the love of Christ with everyone and to making the community a better place for people of all ages and backgrounds.
