Dear Parishioners,  
I invite you to explore our website. I hope you will find information, answers, inspiration, history, hope, and a reason to visit Saint Rita's Church in person.
We invite you to open the doors of our church and open the doors of your hearts to Jesus Christ.
Please share in our ongoing commitment to providing opportunities for Worship through the Celebration of the Liturgy, the Sacraments, Education in God's Word and the Catholic faith.
We want to minister to children, seniors, families and young adults. We are a very diverse community with many different ethnicities and cultures melding into one! In Christ, we truly are brothers and sisters. Let us strive to live this truth always.
Our mission is to reach out to those searching for a spiritual home and to be a welcoming parish for everyone.
Please know that you have a home in our parish family.

 

COVID GUIDELINES STILL IN EFFECT:

A mask MUST be worn at all times in Church. Hand sanitizer is encouraged.

If you have health issues, not feeling well, have a cough, a cold, a temperature or are sick, DO NOT come to Church at this time. There will be channels  available to watch mass. The obligation to attend mass is dispensed until further notice.

Keep your mask on coming up to Communion. Communion is given in hand only.
After you have received, step aside, pull down your mask, put the host in your mouth, pull up your mask, and return to your pew. 

Please continue your donations. Place them in the basket when entering the church.  

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Remember these are the guidelines for everyone to follow for your health and the health of all our parishioners.
