Not sure what to say?

Peter Rossa was the first priest I met when I moved to United States in 2011.

St. Bernadette was close to my place and at that time there was no church building . This new nice and splendid church is such a great achievement under Father Rossa leadership.

I really liked his Sunday preachments. They made me think long after mass was done.

World lost one of the greatest person I have ever known. But for sure he will stay long, if not forever, in our memories.

I am out of the country and so surprised and sad to hear about the death of Father Rossa. He and his entire staff made us feel welcomed when we first came to hear mass at St Bernadette.

He was a great leader and worked so hard for us to have a very beautiful church.

May he rest in peace

I went to Mount Angel Seminary with Fr. Peter. He was a lovable character with a wonderful sense of humor. He was a good and holy man. I know that he stands at God's altar in heaven now. I shall miss you my brother!

Still super sad that he is gone. St Bernadette is home to me and Fr Pete opened this house for me and my family. I am saddened that he is gone. He gave me a "house" to touch base with the Lord. So forever grateful ❤❤❤

Went to school with FR Pete at Laconia High He was one of the few that was always good to me. I am still in shock over his passing such a great man so humbled to have known him.

What a memorable day, and I got hugs from them both!
