Rose Lue is a community organizer, justice advocate, and spiritual companion. She is passionate about people, community, and fullness of life. As a child, she dreamed of becoming a missionary doctor longing to provide healing and care to those who live on the margins. She still dreams of doing just that even though she ended up with a graduate degree in Pastoral Ministries instead of Medicine. (She is still laughing with God about this.)
Rose is an Advanced Lay Leader in the Diocese of San Jose, California, which means she has completed 7 years of formation along with the candidates for permanent diaconate. Rose currently serves on the Justice Commission of the Diocese, Youth Council of her parish, the diocesan committee for Catholic Campaign for Human Development, and the strategy team for Silicon Valley Sponsoring Committee (a group that’s growing a broad-based organization in the Bay Area). She is also a board member of Bay Area Conference for Associates and Religious, co-founder and leader of the Student & Alumni Network for the Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries at SCU, and the co-founder/co-director of a community called GoGatherAsOne whose mission is to promote and honor our universal unity as one humanity and one people of God.
She is also a wife, mother to three, and an active long-time member of St. Simon Parish in Los Altos, California. In her spare time, she likes to play games, various sports, and be outdoors.
