Father, where’s the poor box?
We’re excited to try to better answer that common question by our participation in this year's iGiveCatholic giving day on Tuesday, November 28th. After Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday, Cyber Monday, consider participating in iGiveCatholic on Tuesday.
Gifts will help convert one of our unused confessionals into a three-niche statuary, directing us clearly to our offerings for the poor. Learn more about St. Rita's hopes for the day on our website.
Last year we successfully raised for our goal. Learn about the hopes we had for the day by seeing last year's video and page.
