Welcome to St. Rita of Cascia Parish Website

FINAL RENEW MY CHURCH DECISION – DECREE – Beginning July 1, 2020, St. Rita of Cascia will remain as a parish, with St. Clare of Montefalco being a chapel/worship site of St. Rita of Cascia. One parish, two sites. Fr. Homero Sanchez, OSA, will continue as the pastor. In the next months, we will discover more of what this all means and all the details, but the most important thing to know is that St. Rita will continue as a parish and there will be Masses, devotions, and activities at both sites, under the leadership of one pastor and staff.


St. Rita of Cascia is a parish of the Archdiocese of Chicago, founded in 1905 by the Augustinian Order, who still administer the parish.

We are located at 6243 S. Fairfield Avenue in Chicago, IL 60629. You can reach us at 773-434-9600 (Tel), 773-434-9668 (Fax) or sritaparish@gmail.com (Email).

As a Parish Community we rejoice that you are joining us in our journey of Faith. We invite you to become involved in the spiritual life of our Parish through your presence at Mass and your participation in the many ministries and activities we offer.

Please know that we are here to offer you our support and prayers in all the joys, sorrows and struggles that will touch your life. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate calling our parish office. We will be happy to serve you in any way possible.

May the peace of God bless you and the intercession of St. Augustine and St. Rita of Cascia continue to bless us all.
