M.O.M.S. Baby Shower - October 18/19

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!

A Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help - October 19

On October 19, in the month of the Holy Rosary, St. Rita's is planning a Marian Pilgrimage to the only Vatican approved apparition site in the United States. We will depart at 5:30 a.m. from St. Rita's parking lot and return that evening at 8:30 p.m. Don't missthis opportunity to experience this beautiful shrine for yourself.
Our Lady appeared here to a young Belgian immigrant woman with a message that would change her and give her the courage to reach out to spread the Gospel. The shrine property was preserved from the great Peshtigo fire when everything around it was burned to the ground. This is a place where you will sense God's peace
and the presence of Our Lady. The cost is $60 per person which includes coach bus transportation, Mass at 11 a.m., shrine tour, lunch at the shrine and snacks on the bus. We will return to St. Rita's at 8:30 p.m. that same day.
See the shrine website for more details about the shrine: shrineofourladyofgoodhelp.com. This is a lovely autumn trip to a place of grace and blessing. Space is limited, payment in full must accompany your reservation.

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.”
