I welcome you to Holy Rosary Parish, on Erie's East Side. I moved here in June 2010 and am glad to know this wonderful faith community.
I grew up east of the city, in Harborcreek, at Our Lady of Mercy Parish, the oldest of four children of John and Barb Jacquel. My sister, Kathy (married to Eric Lavins) is a school nurse near Cleveland, OH, while Dave (married to Peggy Hopkins) lives near North East and Linda is currently a member of the parish here.
We host an eight-parish Faith Formation program, including a Children's Liturgy of the Word (10:30 Mass). We partner with St. John the Baptist Parish (509 E. 26th Street) and together promote many activities. Both parishes play host to Head Start preschool programs (since our parochial schools have both closed). We welcome you to come join us for the service we do, the socials we sponsor, and the worship we offer to our great Lord.
~ Fr. John
