Dear Brothers and Sisters of St. Rita Parish,
Our Summer has come to an end, our boys and girls, as well as our young people have gone back to school. Our Mexican Heritage Festival marks the end of the summer, but also the beginning of Fall and Winter activities.
This year, our Mexican Heritage Festival has left us with a rich experience as we witnessed so many people gathered in our parish. We have had visitors from all over the north and south sides of the city – we are growing in number and also in experiences. Our festival has been such an extraordinary task. Thank you to all of the volunteers of our parish for your hard work. It gives me great joy to know that we have servers so committed to the parish and have a profound love for St. Rita. Thanks to each and every one of the members of the Fiesta Committee and their families and friends who served in our festival. Thank you, also, to our Catechesis team for their dedication in the entrance and their loving welcome. Thank you to our business manager and her team of helpers. My gratitude goes also to our community volunteers and helpers, to our sponsors, our parish staff, and to all who made this event possible. But most of all, thank you to all of our parishioners in this beautiful parish – thank you for coming and being part of our family.
I am very excited to say that this year our festival raised about $25,000 dollars, which will be used in the construction of a new kitchen for the St. Augustine Hall. With the help of each one of you we are improving and surpassing our own expectations.
God bless you and THANK YOU! St. Rita of Cascia… Pray for us.
