Looking back on his time as pastor of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta in Ferguson, Father Rosebrough said his life has changed. The racial divide “struck me deeply as I put it in the context of celebrating Eucharist each Sunday,” he said. “Fifty years after the Civil Rights movement, racism still divides the Catholic portion of the Body of Christ.” Father Rosebrough also said he engaged parishioners in a three-year prayer journey, lighting a special candle each Sunday at Mass and praying together to become disciples of peace and justice. “After three years, the parish and I knew that we were different, more attentive, more sensitive and more proactive in seeking justice. Our footprint went beyond the boundaries of Ferguson.”
