Our Apostolates


The Rose Garden Home Mission, Inc, a crisis pregnancy center and community outreach in Covington, KY, is one of the apostolates of the Franciscan Daughters of Mary.  At our Mission, we uphold the dignity of each human person who comes to us in need, and offer help and hope to young, pregnant women, needy families, the poor, the elderly, the handicapped, and more.  In the spirit of Saint Francis, we offer non-judgemental help all of those who come to us to the best of our capabilities, referring them to other places for assistance if we cannot meet their need.


Our outreach includes free pregnancy testing; assisting the women and men in making good "choices" in their lives; our Saint Francis food pantry; material assistance for needy Moms, which includes giving them a New Baby Welcome Basket in their eighth month of pregnancy; and referrals for many other types of needs. 

At the Mission, we are always seeking dedicated volunteers who have a desire to serve Our Lord Jesus Christ by helping the less fortunate.  The hours of the Mission are Monday thru Thursday, 11am-4pm.  Call 859-491-ROSE for more information.


Another apostolate of the sisters' is to pray for priests - who are our "spiritual fathers" - so to build up the "family of God" by offering prayers twice daily for their vocations and offering up the sisters' prayers and good works each day for a particular priest.  Twice monthly we also offer a holy hour for priests which is open to all of our friends.
