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.

St. Rita's Parish WELCOMES you into our Family!



Glory & Praise Books

Advent starts the new Liturgical Year. We will be on cycle 'A' this year. It is a time of preparing for the coming of Christ at Christmas, celebrating with prayer and fasting.

We have new Glory & Praise Books with music and Sunday Readings. They are a hard copy book which should last for at least 5 years. It has the 3 cycles in it - A, B and C.

Mass Prayers and Music in the first pages, Lectionary Readings start on page 783, the First Sunday of Advent - A.

Soleminities and Feast of the Lord and the Saints start on page 956.

The Prayer for Vocations, the Prayer for the Unborn and a Prayer to St. Rita are in the back cover.

Please, Malama (take care of) our new books! Parents, please watch your keiki and teach them to have respect for the books. Pleae take care not to soil or tear them. They will last 5 years if taken care of.

Because of the cost, we DO NOT have extra copies that you will be able to take one home. Please keep them in the Church at all times.

Take some time to check out the new Glory & Praise Books that will be in our Church on December 1st.

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

From Bishop Larry Silva

While this very important celebration is usually on December 8th, and since that is a Sunday this year, the Masses for December 7th & 8th will be for the Second Sunday of Advent.

The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is transferred to Monday, December 9th. The Diocese of Honolulu only celebrates two (2) Holy Days of Obligation throughout the year (Immaculate Conception and Christmas).

The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception will be celebrated on Monday, December 9, 2019, as a HOLY DAY OF OBLIGATION in the Diocese of Honolulu.

Mass at St. Rita Church will be at 7:00am and 6:00pm.
