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 leads the mental health ministry at her parish, serves on 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 co-founder and leader of the Student & Alumni Network for the Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries at Santa Clara University, board member of Bay Area Conference for Associates and Religious, Notre Dame High School in San Jose, and now Future Church.

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.

Ash Wednesday

Could it be then that if we rend our hearts this Lent, we would find MORE capacity to live and love as God would want us to? Could this be the source of how we are to witness and what we are to do in this season of Lent?

Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

How are we called to take care of the talents given to us? Certainly, we are to use them without fear. To claim what God has given us, to make use of it, and to live boldly in trust.
