It's garage sale time! St. Rita's youth is sponsoring their annual garage sale on May 1 and 2, and they're looking for your donations to help make it a success. Please drop off your gently used items - such as clothing, games, books and household items - in the youth room anytime before Monday April 27. Please - no electronics, gym equipment or furniture. 

Sale hours: Friday, May 1, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. and Saturday May 2, 8 a.m.-noon.

OUR BUILDING PROJECT IS A GO!

The Archdiocese has given its final approval for construction of the addition to our church! Thanks to your generosity, we will break ground in the spring for the new space.

The expansion will be built on the north side of the current structure, adding much-needed classroom and education space; a new north entrance and elevator to improve accessibility to the building; and expanded parking.

A model of the new addition and the floor plan are on display in the gathering space. We still welcome more contributions to furnish the new space and to pay down the mortgage.
