GROUNDBREAKING ON SUNDAY FOR NEW ADDITION!

Come join us as as we break ground on our new addition this Sunday, May 31, after the 10:30 a.m. Mass! After years of planning and fundraising, we are ready to make this project a reality. 

God's blessings to the wonderful community of St. Rita's for your financial support and your prayers for this expansion project, which will be built on the north side of the current structure. It will add much-needed classroom space; a new north entrance and elevator to improve accessibility to the building; and expanded parking.

Bids for the construction have come in higher than expected, meaning that a portion of the project might need to be delayed. Our parish leadership outlined the various options in a recent letter to parishioners, which you can read here.
