Welcome to Saint Rita Catholic Church


We are a welcoming Catholic community called by God to live out the message of Christ in love and service to all people. Email us.

Our mission is to bring tranforming love of Christ into the lives of all we meet. Through sharing Eucharist, Prayers, Worship and Service we seek to strengthen ourselves in love and respect for one another and reach out to our broader community and world.

Our vision is to be effective "Stewards of the Gospel" we become Christ's faithful witnesses of the gospel. We offer our time, talents and treasure in service to St. Rita Parish Family and reach out to the broader communities and our world. Missionary clergy, religious and our ancestors lead us to plant good seed in the soil of faith so this work will grow and produce much fruit to the glory of God in His Kingdom.

Since mid-March through to late May, 2020 I have issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In light of the ongoing pandemic, I am hereby extending that dispensation through Tuesday, February 16, 2021, the day before Ash Wednesday.

I would like to urge all our parishioners who can safely do so return to worship at Sunday Mass.

As the situation is getting worse, our best defense against the spread of COVID-19 is to continue to follow safe practices. We must not become complacent in our efforts of cleaning and ensuring safety and health by following previous guidelines issued by the CDC and the Diocese.

Stay home if you are sick

It is critical that employees, volunteers or parishioners do not come to Church if they are experiencing respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills or fatigue.


No meetings or gatherings

After Mass please don’t gather to talk story. Please leave promptly.


General Hygiene

Please wash your hands frequently and thoroughly per CDC guidelines.


No Communal Food

No workplace or Parish Celebrations at this time, especially with food.


To All of our Parishioners!

When life is hard ask for help! When life is good reach out to the people who need your help! Are you in need of some food during these Hard Times? We can help you out! Please call the office or talk to Faythe.

Please ask!
