St. Rose of Lima School Celebrates Anniversary with Centennial Mass

Students, faculty, parents and graduates of St. Rose of Lima School in Thomasville celebrated the school’s 100th anniversary during a Mass and a dinner in York on April 27. The centennial was highlighted by Mass celebrated by Bishop Ronald Gainer.

The school was founded in September of 1919 by the Sisters of St. Joseph, and originally located adjacent to the parish church in York, a few blocks from the fairgrounds. In 2001, St. Rose of Lima School moved to its current location in Thomasville, a suburban area west of the city.
