Learn About HRCU
Holy Rosary Credit Union is a state chartered and federally insured community credit union. We have been serving the people of New Hampshire since 1962.
Holy Rosary Credit Union was founded by a small group of parishioners of Holy Rosary Church in Rochester, New Hampshire. This group was formed to provide assistance and advice to people who otherwise would not have easy access by traditional means. Over the years we have grown into a full-service community credit union. We take pride in having added the most convenient and up-to-date services without losing the compassion and personalized service that is responsible for our growth and the loyalty of our membership. We know that we have made a difference in people's lives.
HRCU will be a leader in facilitating financial success & financial wellness as a convenient and trusted partner.
HRCU is a responsible, community-focused organization members can trust to help them achieve their financial goals by demonstrating compassion, embracing innovation, remaining flexible and delivering exceptional service.
A message from HRCU's President & CEO, Brian Hughes
I can’t thank the staff and members enough for a remarkable 2015. We broke ground on our new Brock Street lobby redesign and expansion in July. Though challenging, our staff managed to move all of our lobby business into our operations center and members quickly got used to using our temporary space. Throughout the renovation and despite the inconveniences, everyone pulled together to make it work.
I was so proud to see the smiling faces and experience the positive attitudes from our staff (the hallmark of our service here at HRCU), even at the most trying of times. Our members were also very gracious and patient, though we had a rather tight space for doing business and parking was cut in half.
On February 1, 2016, the doors to our new lobby opened - welcome to the new HRCU! Members have been very happy with both our new look and the new way we serve them. We are pleased to present you a much more personal way to bank. Over the years, we have seen many barriers between customers and money - starting first with walls, and then the iron bars of the wild west. Even into the 21st century, many financial institutions carried on with this concept, sporting yards of thick glass and troughs for passing paper and money back and forth. Ever-changing times have allowed us to shorten waits, remove barriers and reconnect person-to-person. In our minds here at HRCU, this is the way banking should be – a quality, personal experience each and every time you walk through our doors.
Through all the changes, and as always, we still remember that no two of our members are the same. We love the fact that you are as unique as we are! HRCU is not a one-size-fits-all institution - we work hard every day to understand your individual situation so we are ready to help when you want to learn the ins and outs of a home mortgage or how to buy your first car. You can also depend on us to bring you face-to-face with partners like Bernier Insurance and Northeast Planning, who assist us in making sure that you are financially well protected, both now and in the future. Our staff and volunteers’ number one task is to help our members, friends and neighbors achieve their financial goals.
We are striving to make every experience you have with us excellent and the best we can possibly give you. Whether you want to come in to cash a check, make a deposit using your smartphone, or need some advice on your retirement - we stand ready to help you. This is what sets HRCU apart, and more importantly what our mission is. In 2015, with a collaborative effort between our Board of Directors and members of the management team, we took the time to carefully define what "serving our members" means. Not only are we a not-for-profit financial institution, we also put our values into practice every day by doing what is right for the member first and foremost. We take great pride in that, and it is what makes HRCU unique!
Every day, we strive to demonstrate compassion, embrace innovation, remain flexible and provide exceptional service. All of us here at HRCU continually work within this premise – you can see it from the moment you walk through our doors, call us on the phone, email us, or send us a message on Facebook. You always hear from a real person who cares and values you as a member.
We also continue our tradition of being a local, community-focused organization. In 2015, we were so happy to be able to donate over $50,000 to local community organizations and charities. With the help of many involved members, volunteers and staff, $11,000 was fund raised by the HRCU Crusaders - our Relay For Life team helping the American Cancer Society fight cancer. We awarded over $9,000 of college scholarships in 2015 – which brings the total amount of awarded scholarships over the years close to $180,000. We are very proud to support so many of our young, college-bound members!
I am pleased to report that 2015 was an exceptional year for HRCU financially. Asset, loan and share growth all continue to perform exceptionally well, as you can see from our financial report on pages four and five. Our portfolios are also nicely diversified, which illustrates our institution’s stable yet steady growth path over the years. We are very excited for 2016 - you will continue to see us providing new technology, improving our facilities, and educating our younger members in financial literacy – all while helping each of our members to the utmost of our ability, day in and day out.
