Easter Flowers

Flowers at weekend masses and special events are things we all enjoy at St. Rita’s. The flowers enhance the beauty of our church, and they also are a special way to honor people or important occasions in our lives. We invite you to become a part of this beautiful practice of giving special tributes to someone or by rec- ognizing a significant event in your life by asking you to become a flower sponsor. Please place your donations in an envelope marked Easter Flowers and drop it in the regular collection basket.

Flores de Pascua

Flores para las misas del fin de semana y sobre todo durante los eventos especiales son una de las cosas que todos disfrutamos en Santa Rita. Las flores realzan la belleza de nuestra iglesia y también son una manera especial de honrar a las personas o acontecimientos importantes en nuestras vidas. Los invitamos a ser parte de esta bella práctica de dar tributos especiales a alguien o reconocer un evento importante en su vida al pedirle que se convierta en un patrocinador de flores.  Por favor coloque sus donativos en un sobre que diga flores de pascua y póngalo en la canasta de la colecta.

 Paschal Candle

Thank You

Our sincere thanks to Ramón and Elena Romero for donating the Easter candle this year.  The annual Paschal candle representing Christ the light of the world is lit during Holy Saturday liturgy. This reminds us of Christ’s triumphant victory over death and burns throughout the year at liturgies, baptisms and funerals.
