Communion Service with Deacon Jim

Tuesday, July 24 at 5:00pm
at St. Joseph’s House of Hospitality
(402 South Ave. in Rochester)
I will conduct a Communion Service for the guests and Catholic Workers at St. Joseph's House of Hospitality. Many of you may remember their presentation given during one of our Lenten Soup Suppers.
This is another great opportunity to get to know those among us whose lives are very different from ours yet, as children of God, are similar in so many ways. Getting to know one another is where it all begins! If you plan on attending, please also consider bringing along a donation item. The men could use the following items: clothing items in general, socks and underwear in particular.
Please feel free to call me at 233-0334 or email me at james.fien@dor.org with any questions.
Peace and love,
Deacon Jim

Be a part of our Welcome Ministry!

We are looking for families or individuals who are willing to make a connection with newer parishioners here at St. Rita. We will match you with a new family or individual with similar family dynamics
This would involve making a welcoming phone call, inviting them to attend Mass, Breakfast Club or another activity, and making some introductions to other parishioners. This does not require a big time commitment and will hopefully be rewarding for all involved! Anyone who has been a parishioner for at least a year is encouraged to become involved in this ministry. Contact Karen at the Parish Office at 671-1100 x 11 or by email.
