Our Parish Vision

“We, the parishioners of St. Rita’s will strive to demonstrate the existence and fostering of a RitaEmblemstrong Catholic Christian community as evidenced by our faith, worship, social response and way of life.

We will endeavour to practise Christian Stewardship in the grateful and generous use of our God-given gifts for the benefit of our fellow human beings.

Our patroness is St. Rita – Saint of the Impossible. Like her, may our greatness lie not so much in our initiatives, but in our response.”
