I invite you to explore our website. I hope you will find information, answers, inspiration, history, hope, and a reason to visit Saint Rita's Church in person.
We invite you to open the doors of our church and open the doors of your hearts to Jesus Christ.
Please share in our ongoing commitment to providing opportunities for Worship through the Celebration of the Liturgy, the Sacraments, Education in God's Word and the Catholic faith.
We want to minister to children, seniors, families and young adults. We are a very diverse community with many different ethnicities and cultures melding into one! In Christ, we truly are brothers and sisters. Let us strive to live this truth always.
Our mission is to reach out to those searching for a spiritual home and to be a welcoming parish for everyone.
Please know that you have a home in our parish family.
