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.  


 KNEELER INSTALLATION

The kneelers will be installed in our worship space the week of July 27. The work should not interfere with access to the worship space, but there will be several crew members working on the project during the week. Here is Fr. Rick's letter explaining the reasons for adding the kneelers.


DEADLINE FOR FILING CLERGY ABUSE CLAIMS 

The deadline for filing a claim related to clergy abuse for which the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis may be liable is Monday August 3. The Archdiocese has requested all parishes to publicize this information. You can read more about the claims process here.
