Community Outreach

 

COMMUNITY MEAL

On the third Friday of each month, St. Rita's hosts Community Meal. This event is a hot cooked meal, served in Seton Hall at 6:00pm. Our Community Meal is open to anyone who wishes to join us, and is free of charge. A free-will offering will be gladly accepted.

SISTER PARISH/MISSION OUTREACH COMMISSION

The outreach commission coordinates activities that assist our sister parish in Chimbote, Peru, and an orphanage in Tanzania. The commission organizes various fundraising activities to provide monetary support for these efforts. Everyone is welcome to join the commission. Please call the parish office at 651-459-4596 for more information.  

Check out this greeting from Fr Jose and our brothers and sisters in Peru for our 50th Anniversary on Facebook

COMMUNITY CARING FOR LIFE/PRO-LIFE MINISTRIES

Through this ministry, we seek to be a voice for the voiceless, as well as a direct means of assistance for pregnant women who are in need of help and support. 

CRAFT MINISTRIES

Work with your hands and put your craft skills to use with this fun group of parishioners who knit prayer shawls for the sick and homebound and make rosaries for the missions, while praying for those who receive these spiritual gifts. The craft ministry members meet once a month, usually on the first Thursday. Call the parish office for more information at 651-459-4596.

HOPE FOR THE JOURNEY HOME SHELTER

Parishioners from St. Rita's volunteer to staff this shelter for homeless families, which is located at Guardian Angels Catholic Church in Oakdale.  You can find out more information about the shelter here.  If you would like to volunteer to help, call the parish office for more information.
