iGive Catholic at St. Rita

St. Rita is excited to participate in this year's iGive Catholic giving day on Tuesday, November 28th. After Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday, Cyber Monday, consider participating in iGive Catholic on Tuesday.

Last year we successfully raised for our goal. Learn about the hopes we had for the day in the video above.

After some thought (and many more emails), we're so thankful for our iGive Catholic response. The support of 23 givers contributed $4,325, making our camera project achievable. The school also received gifts of $1,150, which it will use towards a refurbished sound system in the Moreau Center Cafeteria.

To those who included this day in prayer, we give thanks. Our prayers sustain our works.

We also thank those below who generously gave financially, listed below (in the order of their gift).

#iGiveCatholic is an online giving event for people across the nation (and the world!) to come together to raise as much money as possible for Catholic parishes, schools, and ministries located in the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Diocese of Baton Rouge, Diocese of Biloxi, Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, and the Diocese of Jackson on one day: #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017. Last year, #iGiveCatholic raised more than $1.3 million for the Archdiocese of New Orleans.


#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end of year giving.


#iGiveCatholic is on #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017 from 12:01 am to 11:59 pm (midnight to midnight) and takes place at www.iGiveCatholic.org
