WELCOME TO THE CHURCH OF ST. RITA - 1966-2016
CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF CONNECTING FAITH AND LIFE!
All Parish Retreat!
It was truly a blessing to have Steve Angrisano with us at St. Rita's for our three-day retreat, helping us grow in understanding of our Catholic faith and build community. Steve led us in song and prayer, and shared stories that brought laughter and tears.
Above all, he shared with us his deep faith in Jesus Christ and encouraged us to listen to God as he speaks to us, in so many ways, every day. God bless you, Steve, and thank you for sharing your love and faith with us!
Please enjoy some photos from the retreat at right. You can see them in a larger format in this photo gallery.

WE NEED YOUR CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS!
We hope to save time and money by sending occasional email updates to parishioners rather than sending bulk mailings to the entire parish. But we need your current email address to update our records.
Please send your current email address (and phone number, too, if that has changed) to email@example.com.
Feel free to call the parish office at 651-459-4596 if you have questions.
