Serving Gate City Since 1889



Holy Rosary Catholic Church is:

  • A vibrant, diverse, and intimate worshipping community,
  • A historic parish of the Diocese of Birmingham with a rich history and beautiful 125 year old building, and
  • An astonishing community of missionary disciples serving our neighbors through the food bank & clothing closet, after-school, soccer teams, and summer programs.

Join us for Mass on Sundays and Wednesdays and join our efforts to meet Christ in Sacrament and Service.

Realizing the Kingdom of God:

The first apostolate of any parish is to worship the Lord and pray together in faith. From these encounters with the Lord and with each other flow so many works of charity, for faith without works is dead. The primary works that we have been called by God to undertake at Holy Rosary are:

Food Pantry And Clothing Closet

The Holy Rosary Food Pantry distributes food to over 500 households, approximately 1,300 individuals, from the surrounding community. Local participating families receive a large box of food once per month which includes canned goods, bread, meat and vegetables.

After-School & Summer youth Program

After school care provides a safe, fun and enriching place for approximately 120 children a week ranging on average from 6 years of age to 13 years of age. All ages are welcome.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Learning Center

This new initiative is aimed at increasing literacy among the youth that frequent our after-school program. The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Learning Center is located in the front part of the Rectory.  

Soccer Program

In the fall of 2016, 14 boys and girls participate with Holy Rosary Angels U10 Soccer Team while another 6 players participated in the U12 and U14 soccer teams in Irondale.
