WELCOME TO THE CHURCH OF ST. RITA!
The season of Lent is almost upon us. It begins on Ash Wednesday, March 5. We have services planned for 8:30am, a Children's Service at 4:30pm, a 6:00pm service, and a 7:30pm Teen Mass. Ashes will be distributed at all services. We invite you to deepen your Lenten experience through prayer and service by participating in the Lenten activities we have planned at St. Rita's.
