Building on the foundation of values taught in the home and in the parish community, we focus on Catholic doctrine, practice, and heritage. Daily faith experiences of prayer and religious lessons are coupled with expectations of self-respect and respect for all others. Students participate in weekly liturgies, seasonal prayer services and activities, and other traditional celebrations of faith, including Festa Saint Rita Day in May to honor our patron saint. St. Rita students have opportunities for community outreach annually, such as collections for various outreach groups, and community cleanup days. Our philosophy as a school calls us to assist in the growth of well-educated and responsible Christian citizens and parishioners.
