About Us

Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Church, A Parish of the Catholic Archdiocese of San Diego. Founded in 1921 in Chula Vista, California with pastor, Rev. Michael Egan, and his flock of twenty-five families. Currently blessed to be serving approximately 5,500 families and open to serve more. St. Rose of Lima has nearly 20 masses a week and offers all day adoration on Fridays and confessions Saturday morning. We have over 30 ministry groups, giving our parishioners an opportunity to participate in faith formation, parish life and/or Christian service. As a parish we give back through the Sister Dolores Outreach Program developed and dedicated to serve the poor, supported with parishioners who collect day old bread, bag food for distribution, provide fellowship to the homeless, and donate food and clothing to the pantry. In addition to, the aforementioned, St Rose has a Religious Education Program, a preschool, Daniel's Den and a School (k-8) located in the De Flores Center. Our church, clergy and parish staff are fully committed to helping our parishioner grow in their life with Christ.
