In Service of Those in Need

Taking seriously our Christian calling to serve the vulnerable and needy, St. Rita Parish has partnered with the Xavier University Community Outreach Center since 2012. Our monthly second collection for the assistance of the poor goes to XUCOC, located at 7934 Edinburgh St., just off of Xavier University's campus in Gert Town.

XUCOC itself partners also with Total Community Action, connecting it to various resources around the greater New Orleans Area. XUCOC is open for assistance the 2nd Monday of the month, offering financial, food, and counseling services. On other days, XUCOC will connect clients with other area resources.

To contact the Xavier University Community Outreach Center, please call (504) 324-6630.
