July 30, 1927 — March 4, 2022

Reverend Robert C. Rosing passed away March 4, 2022 at his residence at St. Charles Community.  Father Bob was 94 years old and was preceded in death by his parents Frank and Pauline Rosing; his sisters Rita Wigger (Robert), Pat Braun (Elmer) and brothers Frank and Paul.  He is survived by his sister Pauline Holmes, sister-in-law Edith Rosing and numerous nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. Father Rosing began his seminary studies at St. Meinrad Seminary in Indiana and completed at St. Paul Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. He was ordained a priest on May 30, 1953 at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption by Bishop William Mulloy. He served as an assistant at the parishes of St. Boniface, Ludlow; St. Therese, Southgate; Mother of God, Covington; and Corpus Christi, Newport.

At the time of his retirement, Father Bob stated “I have enjoyed every assignment I had. I never wanted to leave any of them.  If I have to find a common thread through all of this, to be a priest gives you an opportunity to be significant in the lives of other people in what I consider the most important dimension of human life; their relationship with God.  I’d call the life of a priest adventurous and exciting and full.” Visitation will be at Mother of God Church in Covington, KY at 10:00 am on Saturday `March 12, followed by Mass at 12:05.Memorials are suggested to Parish Kitchen, PO Box 1234, Covington, KY 41012 or Emergency Shelter of NKY, 436 W. 13th St,.
