WELCOME TO THE CHURCH OF ST. RITA! 

 

MEMORIAL GARDEN

St. Rita's Parish Council is moving forward with the installation of a memorial garden on the church grounds, which will feature bricks that can be purchased and engraved to honor loved ones or commemorate important dates or events.

The garden will be installed on the 80th Street side of the church building, which will beautify this open space and will provide easy access from our chapel and for those with mobility issues. Landscaping and plantings will provide privacy screening from the street.

You can read more about the memorial garden project, and find the order form, here.

You, hey you - we are so glad you are here at St Rita's!  And, we hope that you feel blessed and encouraged as a member of our parish family.  Just like in every family, we need all our members to get involved and participate, you each have a lot of unique, God-given gifts and talents that could benefit our family.  There are a variety of ways for you to engage in our parish family and grow in your relationship with our Lord and the community.

After I got involved, coming here was a lot more meaningful, I was no longer a stranger, but someone that people here knew and cared about.  - Involved Parishioner
