Parish Pastoral Council

The Parish Pastoral Council is an advisory body of parishioners established to consult with the  pastor and recommend the direction of parish activities in keeping with the parish mission.  Three members are selected annually to serve staggered three-year terms.  All parishioners are welcome to attend the meetings held on the fourth Tuesday of the month, September through June, at 7:00 pm. 

The council's mission states:  "The Parish Pastoral Council of the Church of St. Rita shall exist for the sole purpose of supporting the Pastor and the Christian Community as a whole.  With guidance from the Holy Spirit, we will help each other on our pathway to the Lord." 

Current members of the Pastoral Council are:

Father Mark Joppa , Jack Germo, Paul Mazaur, Mike Gutterman, Dan Ordner, Lori Beasley, Sue McGowan, Jennifer Reckinger, Brian Olson, and Michelle Bump. 

Thank you to Paul Garcia, Lauri Durose and Mary Menard who ended their term on the Parish Council in October 2020.
