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.

Great News about the Capital Campaign!

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.

Thank you

The Capital Campaign Committee

June 14/15 Mission Appeal

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.”
