Welcome to Saint Rita Catholic Church


We are a welcoming Catholic community called by God to live out the message of Christ in love and service to all people. Email us.

Our mission is to bring tranforming love of Christ into the lives of all we meet. Through sharing Eucharist, Prayers, Worship and Service we seek to strengthen ourselves in love and respect for one another and reach out to our broader community and world.

Our vision is to be effective "Stewards of the Gospel" we become Christ's faithful witnesses of the gospel. We offer our time, talents and treasure in service to St. Rita Parish Family and reach out to the broader communities and our world. Missionary clergy, religious and our ancestors lead us to plant good seed in the soil of faith so this work will grow and produce much fruit to the glory of God in His Kingdom.
