Rosa Mystica Ministries began in 2009 with a dream of having a home chapel and a healing herb and rose garden where people could meet and healing could take place. The name, Latin for mystical rose, is another name for Mary the mother of Jesus.

The ministry is inspired by the Christian Mystics; Theresa of Avila, Hildegard of Bingen and Francis of Assisi and also Mary the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. And of course, beloved Master Jesus.

Over the past five years the ministry has undergone radical changes. 

in 2013 the home, chapel and garden were sold and became a group home for recovering women and children. Rev. Carol eventually relocated to Rockport Texas and became an active member of Saint Peter's Episcopal church. Inspired by the natural beauty of the small coastal community and its rich heritage of artistic expression, she re-embraced her lifelong calling to make art and teach artistic expression. 

The ministry thus evolved into one of more personal interactions with those wishing to discover their inner artistic voice and service to her church and to local Al Anon and other community groups.
