Communion & Liberation (CL)

   Mariotte Corson

CL is an ecclesial movement in the Catholic Church, a community of people who have been changed by the encounter with Christ. It is named for the fact that only the Christian event, as lived in communion with one another, can bring about the liberation of the human person.

The life of the fraternity is lived through the free formation of groups of men and women of all conditions and states of life, whose friendship and communion are based upon their common commitment to move forward together toward holiness, which they acknowledge to be the genuine purpose of human existence.

You can learn more about Communion and Liberation HERE.

One person praying alone is heard, but when many pray together we amplify the power of prayer to ask for healing from our pain, for God's presence to be known to all those we pray for and for peace.

The St. Rose Parish Prayer Chain accepts requests for prayer for those afflicted with illness, going through difficult times or upon one's passing. You can send prayer requests to Kristen.

You can also pray with us as a member of the prayer chain by contacting Kristen who will add you to the email list for prayer requests.
