St Roses Senior High School

Chaplaincy

"Your servant am I, Lord, your Servant, the child of your maidservant; you have loosed my bonds. I will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the Lord" (Psalm 116:16-17).

Introduction

St Rose’s Senior High School is under Catholic Management and traditions. And hence apart from the intellectual formation of the students, the school also serves as a place to encounter the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

it must be noted however, that the school does not force students to convert to Catholicism but holds to the truth that we all have one God as Creator and Father of us all and so while in school all students follow the Catholic religious traditions upon which the school was founded.

Religious Activities

In light of this, the following religious activities are undertaken and students are encouraged to participate fully, actively and consciously:

  • Periodic Retreats at the beginning of each semester.
  • General Masses on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Aside these, on Tuesdays, all first year students attend Mass. All second year students attend their form Mass on Thursdays, and all final year students attend their form Mass on Fridays.
  • Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on every first Sunday of the month.
  • Grotto Mass on every last Saturday of the month, when we consecrate
  • Lauds and compline takes place every day.
  • And finally, in keeping with the traditions of the school, every year, at the climax of the Rosary moth of October, we have singular honour of a Pastoral visit of the Bishop of the Diocese, Most Rev. Joseph Afrifah-Agyekum.
