Holy Rosary Church, Rosenberg, TX

At first glance this Roman Catholic church in Rosenberg, Texas, seemed a little plain but the stained glass was spectacular.

The names, on the historical sign, give you a little insight into the original settlers in this little town.  From the memorials, it seemed as though there was an equal mix of Czech, German, Irish and latterly Hispanic.  I was touched by the little rose garden planted for loved ones who had passed on.  Every Catholic Church I have visited in Texas has been open to any visitors and that fills me with hope for a trusting, accepting future.

    • Thank you – are you sitting comfortably with a cup of tea? Texas was claimed, as territory, at various times by Spain, Mexico and France. After the Alamo we became an independent Republic in 1836 then choose to join the Union of the United States. It is the only state on continental America that was previously an independent country so we are able to fly the Lone Star Flag at the same height as the Stars and Stripes. The sign must have been placed in 2011 but we are still independent in 2019. The United States are similar to the European Union. Each state has a State Capitol and Congress, a different legal, school and administrative system. The Supreme Court can overrule any state decision, as can Federal laws. New Yorkers would argue that Texans even speak a different language…🤠 When the Spanish first arrived, the native Americans greeted them with the word Texas which they assumed was the name of the territory. Texas means friend.

      • Thanks for the information. I think my fourth grade teacher will not be impressed that I had forgotten that Texas was an independent country prior to joining the union. thank you for taking the time to give all the information.

      • LOL! I knew nothing about Texas history until I moved here and I was born in the US! My great grandparents moved to, and married in Texas in the late 1800’s. I come from a long line of ‘Sam Houstons’ – named in deference. I am the one who deserves to sit in the corner with the hat on. 😀

    • You know Roy, vandalism is pretty uncommon in our part of the world. Texas has a slogan for littering “Don’t mess with Texas’ and it seems to have worked. Litter is treated with shock and I only see graffiti on trains that pass through.

  1. I went to that church in May 1977 with a friend who was from Rosenberg. He had just graduated from University of Texas and I had just graduated from Texas A&M University. We put aside our college rivalry on that day because both of us were Catholics.

    • That’s a lot to put aside, even if you share the same religion…LOL! I am still struggling with the discovery that my great grandparents from McKinney were avid Masons (and Protestants). My great aunt went to Baylor College for Ladies back in the 20s.
