Fr. Rookey was a dear friend and mentor to Debbie and Vanessa for many years. His ministry inspired them to deepen their faith and eventually form OSMM. For many years, they worked with him by providing transportation in St. Louis each month as he conducted healing masses at parishes and visited the sick in hospitals and private homes. He was a great support and inspiration.
Because of this great friendship, Fr. Rookey entrusted Debbie and Vanessa with many of his private possessions before he passed away. We have the privilege of preserving these items of his legacy.
Come visit our Chapel dedicated to Fr. Peter Rookey where we have on display, countless items including his original habit, rosary of the Seven Sorrows, his sandals and mass kit. A statue of the Blessed Mother and St. Peregrine which were in his office for many years are displayed. Come and see the beautiful chapel which honors a humble and true servant of Mary.
