Pastor’s Update, July 21, 2021
St. Rita's has resumed regularly scheduled Mass and Confession. The obligation for in-person Mass attendance resumes on August 15, 2021. Mask wearing is no longer necessary, but may be worn by those who are not comfortable otherwise.
I ask you to continue your support through prayer for our Parish, our Diocese and our Country. I know these times are challenging, but I also ask for your continued financial support. Without your gifts, our Parish will struggle to continue our most basic functions. Thank you for your essential support. May God keep you safe, continue to bless you and your families, and keep us all in His loving care.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. Peter Di Tomasso, M. SS.CC.
