Fr. Geoff Rose, OSFS, is a member of the religious congregation the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, Toledo-Detroit Province. In 2015, he was named President of St. Francis de Sales School in Toledo, Ohio, after joining the school in 2013.

The first 12 years of his ministry began at Lumen Christi Catholic High School in Jackson, Michigan as a teacher, chaplain/director of Campus Ministry and part of the administrative team.

Fr. Geoff is co-founder of Mark 5:11 Ministries where he provides retreats, talks, conferences, and parish missions both nationally and internationally. The focus of Mark 5:11 Ministries is to share the Joy of the Lord in all that we do. Known affectionately as “Frose” by his students, his energy, humor, and passion for sharing God’s love is refreshing.

In addition Fr. Geoff is passionately involved in the ministry of foreign missions. He professed his vows in 1998 and was ordained a priest in 2002.

Open to men and women of all faiths, the Catholic Business Network's mission is to engage and empower Northwest Ohio business leaders and professionals to promote Catholic values in the workplace. The ministry's mission goals are to:

+ Share ways to live the Catholic faith through business practices, relationships with all workplace stakeholders, and community service;
