“Kindness and truth shall meet; justice and peace shall kiss. Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven. The LORD himself will give his benefits;
our land shall yield its increase. Justice shall walk before him, and prepare the way of his steps.” ~Psalm 85
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Although it may be mid-summer, lots of work and planning are happening at St. Rita. I always look forward to these days and enjoy seeing the flurry of activity around our campus. Summer gives everyone at the parish a change in routine, time for a bit of rest, and a chance to get things "tuned-up" before fall. This is a place of constant activity. Even the office staff is helping out with rearranging furniture and painting. Extensive "super cleaning" of the school and gym and various repairs and upgrades are underway. Vacation Bible School signups and volunteers (we are especially blessed by our many teen volunteers and parents) are in preparation for a great summer event for our young people. ChristLife volunteer training and coordination is underway for the fall. Registrations for St. Rita School and Pre-school are coming in as well as Faith Formation and our two-year Confirmation Program. We are blessed by the many volunteer gardeners who have been hard at work keeping the beautiful flowering St. Rita landscaping alive during these hot and dry days.
In 1 Corinthians 12, St. Paul reminds us that we are many parts but are "one body" as we help build up the Body of Christ. No task is too small or insignificant!
May God Bless You!
