WELCOME TO
THE CHURCH OF ST. RITA! 

 

FALL FESTIVAL IS THIS WEEKEND!

St. Rita's annual Fall Festival is coming up this weekend! We're looking forward to a fun celebration for our parish community.

You can find the schedule of all the festival events here.

There are many opportunities for you to help. We still need donations for the bottle blast, farmers market and stuffed animals for the children's games. You can drop them off in Seton Hall. 

We also hope you'll sign up to volunteer some of your time over the weekend. 

Here's the link to sign up for volunteer shifts online

We also have paper signup sheets in the gathering space.

Enjoy some pictures from last year's festival in the photo gallery!
