    The Continuing Christian Education (CCE) program at St. Rose Parish has a five-fold mission:

    1. To enable EVERY member of the St. Rose Parish Family to grow in the understanding of their Catholic faith, thus growing in their relationship with God.
    2. To assist the St. Rose Parish Family in living out the tenets of their faith.
    3. To form our children and their parents, as well as the entire St. Rose Family to be properly prepared to receive the graces that flow from the frequent reception of the Sacraments.
    4. To participate in the St. Rose Parish Mission of “making room for all at the table of the Lord through loving service.”
    5. To assist parents in fulfilling their baptismal commitment to nurture their children in the way of our faith.

  •  Boy Scouts

    Boy Scout Troop 40 and Cub Scout Pack 40 are part of the Skyline District, Sam Houston Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. They have been sponsored by St. Rose Parish for over 50 years. The Pack is made up of dens for Tiger Cubs (1st grade/age 6), Wolves (2nd grade/age 7), Bears (3rd grade/age 8) and Webelos patrols (4th & 5th grades/ages 9 & 10). Boy Scouts (6th-12th grades/ages 11-17) are organized into patrols and earn ranks leading to the ultimate goal of Eagle Scout. Patrols and dens gather weekly (3-4 hours per month) at parish facilities for age-appropriate activities, including meetings, field trips, crafts, athletic and academic award activities, competitions, camping outings and service projects. Both the pack and the troop meet monthly for awards and recognition.

    The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of citizenship and to develop personal fitness. Contact Rick Wrobel at 281-330-8869 for more information.
