Pastor's Message - February 1, 2015“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.” ~Psalm 95
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
This weekend at the 9:00am Mass we recognized our Boy Scouts and those who have achieved their religious emblem awards. Learning more about their Catholic faith included study and discussion about the different books of the Bible, the unique character of the sacraments, and their own relationship to Jesus and their community. We adults could use a similar “brush-up” about our Catholic Faith. The efforts at earning these awards are well deserved. Congratulations, Scouts!
The Scouting programs here at St. Rita happen because of the strong dedication of parents who strive to provide a healthy environment for the children of our community. Scouts and scout parents also include members of nearby faith communities who share in this strong commitment towards fostering the values of good moral character. We have active Boy and Girl Scout programs and many scouting events throughout the year, including outside camping in the winter!
