Santa Rosa Roman Catholic Church
The Santa Rosa Roman Catholic Church is one of the major houses of worship in Arima. The church was built by a group of Capuchin priests who founded the town in the mid 1700s. A few years ago, the church received regional and international attention when a statue of the Virgin Mary was discovered "crying" tears of blood. Devout Catholics and curious onlookers alike all trekked to the church to witness the sight. Every year, Catholics and Indigenous people from around the country, the Caribbean and North America come to the Santa Rosa RC Church on the last Sunday in August to observe the feast of Santa Rosa de Lima.
This is in response to the person who talked about the carnival band. I too have mixed feelings about it. I probably need a little more education on carnival. Do you know that in the USA, many religous denominations come out on carnival day singing praises. I guess the trend has just started here. Trinidad is a small country and am sure eventually,we can outnumber these bikini bands. We may not benefit from this trend now but our great great grandchildren will surely do.
Fortunately, many young adults want to take part but not permitted by their parents. Yet they are allowing them to go out on the streets on the two days of carnival. to rebel. Think again.
By the way I love this church very much.
I don't like that we don't have pews with kneels..... i strongly believe we should get it eg. st francis in sangre grande, i've been to masses there and i enjoy kneeling.
I love that Monsenuour & Decon Devertile are always so good in explaining the hommly.. and the chior is good needs more soloist
My roots run very deep in the Carib Community from both my parents. Castellano and Lopez. I live abroad, but my heart remanins with the fellow members of the Carib community and the Santa Rosa Church.
I have not been able to come home since my mother passed; but part of me will always be there.
I am a member of this parish but NOT all my life. The togetherness of all kinds of people is what drew me to love Santa Rosa. I have also had many awesome experiences before the blessed sacrament and as a choir vocal, youth member and altar server in this parish...i am proud to say that Santa Rosa is HOME.
