"An action of small value performed with much love of God is far more excellent than one of a higher virtue, done with less love of God." (Saint Frances De Sales)


Holy Rosary School began in 1891, by Father Eversmann who asked a group of Benedictine sisters who to make Tacoma their home. Father knew that Catholic education was essential for the Pacific Northwest, and Holy Rosary School opened that year as the first Catholic Elementary School in Washington.

Our development efforts focus on educating and involving our community in the long-term success of the school. The office is responsible for the Annual Fund Drive, Chocolate Sale Auction, Parent Club, and Planned Giving. It also orchestrates all recruitment efforts, including public relations and marketing the school. Your generosity means strong academic and spiritual programs, equitable teacher salaries, accessible tuition and financial stability for Holy Rosary School.

For more information on development programs please contact our Development Director, Katey Briere, at 253-272-7012.

Annual Appeal is currently under way....thank you for your support and consideration for our school.
