Archbishop Kurtz' Statement on Violence

The Centennial Campaign conducted at St. Rita Church was an overwhelming success. Thanks to the hard work of our campaign volunteers and the generosity of many of our parishioners, we exceeded our goal of $180,000 by $140,840, for a total of $320,840 pledged.

The Prayer Intentions of Pope Francis for August:
Sports: That sports may be an opportunity for friendly encounters between peoples. May it contribute to peace
in the world.

Living the Gospel: That Christians may live the Gospel, giving witness to faith, honesty, and love of neighbor.
