While the Santa Rosa Chapel is the ideal settings for weddings, it is also a remarkable spot for christenings, memorials, concerts and other special occasions.
Every Christmas on the second Saturday of December a traditional Christmas program is held. The evening includes holiday music, poetry and stories, all taking place among hundreds of glimmering candles and scents of pine and sea.
Each Spring on the first Sunday in May our committee of volunteers sponsor a classic Swiss-Italian Polenta dinner which takes place at the Santa Rosa Catholic Church, 1174 Main Street. The celebration is held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the cost of the dinner running $15 for adults and $5 for children under 12. The dinner menu includes polenta topped with beef or chicken stew, salad, rolls, and Swiss torta or ice cream for dessert. Wine and beer are available at an additional cost. This original Swiss-Italian meal is served to about 500 people each year with people coming from all parts of California.
