Holy Rosary Catholic School Principal Named

Fr. Orrin Halepeska, Pastor of Holy Rosary Catholic Church – Rosenberg and Adrienne Rodriquez, Principal of Holy Rosary Catholic School.

Holy Rosary Catholic Church is pleased to announce that Mrs. Adrienne Rodriguez has been named the new principal of Holy Rosary Catholic School.

The process of finding a new principal for Holy Rosary Catholic School began in January 2022 at the Archdiocesan level with the guidance of the Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Dr. Debra Haney, vetting qualified individuals to then go before the Principal Selection Committee consisting of members of the School and Parish Community, Parish Staff and former educational leaders from the community.

Rodriguez grew up in Katy attending St. Bartholomew Catholic Church. Her husband is a Richmond native and attended St. Theresa in Sugar Land. They are moving back to the area after having been in Georgetown, Texas so that they can be closer to family with the recent addition to their family – their 3-month-old daughter.

Rodriguez graduated from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas with a BA in Spanish and received her Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University in Austin, Texas.  She began her career in education as a high school Spanish teacher, moved into school administration as a middle school principal, then high school associate principal, and most recently served as an elementary school principal in Georgetown.

Upon acceptance of her new position, Rodriguez stated, “I felt God leading me to the Catholic school system for some years, and after a lot of prayer and patience, it is with great pleasure and excitement that I begin the journey as principal of Holy Rosary Catholic School.  I am blessed to be able to continue my life’s passion of nurturing students, supporting teachers and partnering with parents to educate our future’s mind, heart and spirit.”

Fr. Orrin Halepeska, Pastor of Holy Rosary Catholic Church, added, “We feel confident that her vast experience and leadership will enhance the legacy of academic excellence and community that has been synonymous with our school for over 80 years.  We look forward to welcoming her into our Holy Rosary family.”

The community is invited to meet Rodriguez on Sunday, June 26th at the 11:30 am Mass at Holy Rosary Catholic Church and the Parish Picnic immediately following from 1 – 3 pm.

Holy Rosary Catholic School is located at 1426 George Street in Rosenberg, Texas.  The school attracts students in Pre-K through 8th grade from Rosenberg, Richmond, Sugar Land, Katy, Fulshear and Needville.  The 27-acre facility, set in a rural community, includes junior high/middle school and elementary school buildings.  The Catholic values and high standard of education taught at Holy Rosary School lay the foundation for the future.  Bright futures shine at Holy Rosary Catholic School.

Holy Rosary Catholic School

Since 1941, Holy Rosary Catholic School (HRCS) has been offering excellence in education for Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade. Situated on 27 tree-filled acres in Central Fort Bend County, HRCS is conveniently located between Hwy 90 and Hwy 59.  As a community that is dedicated to the spiritual, academic, physical and emotional growth of all students, HRCS focuses on the individual student with expectations set high for all.

At HRCS, not only do students grow in knowledge, but also in love and respect for God, themselves and the world around them. They believe religion should be learned and lived. The weekly children’s Mass (prepared and led by the students) and daily religion classes immerse the students in their Faith. These lessons reach beyond the classroom and are reinforced in all aspects of student’s campus life, forming a moral compass which will guide them in later years.  While HRCS strives to create a Catholic atmosphere, they welcome children of all faiths.

The values and high standard of education taught at HRCS lay the foundation for the future by instilling in each student the love of learning and the value of service to the community. As our graduates move on to public or parochial high schools, their time at Holy Rosary Catholic School provides them with the experience and tools that become the springboard to their future success.
