‘Relevant and vibrant’

Father Robert Rosebrough and students at Blessed Teresa of Calcutta School created a Saints Hall of Fame at the school in 2014. The saints encourage the idea of the Catholic faith and the ambition to model and exemplify the call to sainthood.

Even before the first riot, arson and looting after the death of Michael Brown, the Catholic response already was underway via Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Parish in Ferguson.

Parishioners returning from the Catholic Women's Recognition Ceremony in Manchester felt the parish had to do something in response to Brown's death the previous day, Aug. 9, 2014. But what?

The answer: prayer. Led by pastor Father Robert Rosebrough, the parish prayed the Rosary the next night at Blessed Teresa of Calcutta's Our Lady of Lourdes grotto.
