The Chili Supper is an annual event held in later winter. The event is a key fundraiser for our parish. Many volunteers are needed to help organize, set up the gym, and prepare food.
This group coordinates the coffee and doughnuts social on the first Sunday of each month during the school year. They also prepare all parish receptions and are present to greet people. This group promotes the sense of community while providing occasions for parishioners to get to know each other and welcome new parishioners.
This group meets the second Tuesday or each month, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The group focuses on Christian fellowship in a variety of ways through: prayer, birthday club, crafts, cards, bingo, occasional trips, and much more. All are welcome, including members for other parishes, religious denominations, or ethic groups.
The annual St. Rita Picnic is held the second weekend in August. Although the picnic is a 2-day event, it involves an entire week of preparation... grounds set up, chicken dinner preparation, working game booths, beer garden, clean-up, etc
This group meets every Thursday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm to make quilts for the annual parish picnic. They quilt at three different frames, while at the same time other mark and cut pieces which are sewn together to make a quilt top.
