The Au Family

The council is so indebted to the Au Family for all they do for St. Rose of Lima Church. Andy runs our weekly Hospitality Program at the Church, which not only supports the council economically, but also provides fellowship for the parish. Andy always gives the glory to his teams for all their hard work, but never takes any accolades. Andy also serves as an altar server and sacristan for the church. His family is always working for the church, our priests and former pastor. Thanks to Andy, Shirley, Andrew and Linda for being such a witness of service to our Church!

He and Kathy also head up the St. Rose of Lima Parish Respect Life Committee and work tirelessly to promote the culture of life in our parish and community. They organized the 40 days for life campaign for St. Rose and spent many hours in prayer at the abortion clinic in Germantown. John also shows up to any event he can make if he is in town. Thanks to John and Kathy for all they do to make our world a better place!

The Coppola Family

The Coppola's do a tremendous amount of work for our parish. Dean and Penny work tirelessly on our annual parish Fiesta. Fiesta is not only a community and parish social event, but it has become a very important fund raiser for our parish. We raise about $30,000 annually for the parish at the Fiesta. Two of the main fundraising events are the silent auction and live auction, both of which are run by Penny and Dean. They work countless hours collecting donations from merchant's, wrapping gift baskets for the silent auction. The final week, after 6 months of hard work, does not afford them much sleep. They are also wonderful examples of Christian living to their two children.

The Millavec Family

Dan and Sandy Millavec do so much for St. Rose and they do it so unassumingly. Both Dan and Sandy work tirelessly at the Fiesta. Sandy helps to run our very successful Book Nook and Dan is by her side and he is also the Finance Director for Fiesta. Dan has run for years our very successful Christmas Tree Fundraiser at St. Rose. Dan has also stepped up and become our Financial Secretary. Dan and Sandy are always there to help when you need them and never have to be asked! Thanks Dan and Sandy for all you do at St. Rose of Lima Parish!

The Lynch Family

St. Rose of Lima Council would like to thank the Lynch family for their tireless dedication to our Council, Archbishop Sheen Assembly, the Archdiocese of Washington District and Calvert Province. Mike served as Grand Knight this past year and as a Catechist in the parish. Mikayla served on the altar as server and Morgan will soon follow in her footsteps. The girls are at every Knights' event and it just would not be the same without their smiling faces!
