October 5 is a busy day! Here are some things that you can do:
Our annual parish Baby Shower for those in need will take place October 18/19. Please bring NEW baby items to any Mass and the M.O.M.S. group will collect and distribute them to the Pregnancy Information Center, Catholic Charities, Mutual Ground, and the Transitional Living Center at Hesed House. There is a great need for diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, cereal, bottles, blankets, onesies, sleepers – everything you need to care for an infant. NEW THIS YEAR – the agencies have asked that we not bring used clothing, as they do not have the room to store it. They will accept NEW clothing only, up to 12 months. We ask that if you have gently used items to donate, you instead contact the St. Vincent DePaul society. Thank you for your generosity!
Do you wonder about the Catholic Faith? Do you need to prepare to celebrate a Sacrament? Are you interested in becoming a member of the Catholic Church? Want to know more about who God is?
"Come and See" by joining us for our FRIDAY FAITHFEST October 24, 2014 in the Parish Center from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. We will ask you to remain after the learning hour to let us know how we can help you in your preparation.
Call the Parish office 630-892-5918 or use the contact form on this website.
Ask you friends to join you and “Come and See.” Sessions available in both English and Spanish.
St. Rita's is pleased to announce the Treasures of the Church Relic exhibit!
This exposition involves some 150 relics, including those of St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux (the "Little Flower"), St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Faustina Kowalska. The supreme highlight is one of the largest relics of the Church's claim to the True Cross in the world and a piece of the Veil that, according to sanctioned tradition, is believed to have belonged to Our Lady.
The exhibit will be open during the day from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for school children, and from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the evening for the general public. A bilingual presentation will be made at 7:00pm in the church. The exhibit will be located downstairs on the north end of the Parish Hall, with the presentation upstairs in the Church.

Great News from the Capital Campaign Committee
We’re pleased to announce that one of our parishioner has donated $6000.00 to the ARISE capital campaign fund. We would like to give a special Thanks and recognition to this family for their generosity towards our home of Saint Rita. They have asked to be kept anonymous and we will respect their wishes. We will keep them and their family in our prayers as a form of appreciation. They have also asked if we could have a matching contribution from the rest of us so we can complete the much needed repairs to the Parish Center this fall.
Commitments like this is what makes Saint Rita a great Christian community, everyone working together and sharing their Time, Talent and Treasure.

The masses of June 14/15 will host a speaker for Mission Appeal. The Mission Appeal collection will help overseas missionaries of the church.
Fr. Bill Donnelly, M.M. who served as a Maryknoll missioner in Central America will visit our Parish this coming weekend. Fr. Bill will be happy to talk with any person who is interested in learning more about mission life or perhaps becoming an overseas missioner.
“Maryknoll – The Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America- was established by the U.S. bishops in 1911 to witness the Gospel among the peoples and cultures of foreign lands. Maryknollers share the Good News, not only in word alone, but in practical and concrete actions –feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, giving shelter to the homeless, comforting the oppressed. Maryknoll depends entirely upon the prayers and support of its friends; we serve with profound gratitude for the generosity of our benefactors.”
