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 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.
