WELCOME TO
THE CHURCH OF ST. RITA! 
 

CONSTRUCTION IS UNDERWAY ON OUR ADDITION

 Crews have been busy preparing the north side of our property for construction of our new addition. Please note that parking on the north side of the lot will be off-limits while the project is underway. 

The groundbreaking ceremony on May 31 was a joyous occasion! You can see photos of the event here, or watch a video of the ceremony here, which was provided by George Chavez.

OUTREACH ACTIVITIES

Blood Drive: St. Rita's is sponsoring a community blood drive for the American Red Cross on July 9 from 1 p.m.- 7 p.m. We hope you'll consider donating blood, which is especially needed during the summer. You can sign up on the bulletin board outside the parish office or call the office. You can also go to the Red Cross website and sign up online. Download and print this flyer for more information.  

 

Hope for the Journey Home shelter: St. Rita's will be staffing the shelter, which is located at Guardian Angels in Oakdale, the week of August 23-August 30. Please consider signing up for a shift or two that week to assist those in need in our own community. You can register through this online calendar. 

 

Please call the parish office at 651-459-4596 if you have any questions about these activities.
