Enclosed in your envelope packet you will see “pink envelopes” entitled “Diocesan Stewardship Goal Assitance”. The purpose of these envelopes is to receive your contributions to help our parish close any gap between the St. Rita’s Target toward the Diocesan Stewardship Appeal (this year set at $78,392) and any shortfall in parishioner payments to the Diocese used for its operations.
This Pink Envelope is intended for use by those parishioners who do not feel comfortable making a pledge directly to the diocese but who would like to help the parish reach our Target by April 30. The Pink Envelopes are NOT intended for payments on any pledge your family has already made. Those should be sent directly to the diocese or placed in the Diocesan Appeal envelopes sent to your home.
Our Appeal has a shortfall of $36,000. If you have not pledged and wish to contribute, please use the pink envelope.

Plan to attend this Summer's Steubenville Catholic Youth Conference. A Steubenville Youth Conference is primarily an invitation to spiritual growth. For some this means entering into a personal relationship with God for the first time. For others, this means a deeper and more mature acceptance of the gospel and the Church and a greater zeal to be a witness for Christ.
Find out more by attending an informational/registration meeting on Monday, February 9th in the Parish Center at 7 p.m. Teens entering 9th grade in Fall 2015 and graduating seniors in Spring 2015 are welcomed to attend.
