Liturgy: The Work of the People
“And from the throne came a voice saying, "Praise our God, all you his servants…”
St. Rita Catholic Community offers many opportunities for our parishioners to become more involved in the beautiful celebration of the Mass, the source and summit of Christian life. We encourage all members of our parish, young and old, prayerfully to consider offering their special talents and time to serving in one of our weekly Masses.
We provide extensive training in all Liturgical Ministries, so you need not have any prior experience. Below are some of liturgical ministries you can share in at St. Rita. Please explore and discover how you can serve God and his people!
If you have any question, please call the Pastoral Center.
St. Rita Catholic Church offers its members the opportunity to share their gifts of voice and music during our many weekly Masses as part of one of our many choirs.

St. Rita Catholic Church offers young Catholics an opportunity to grow in their faith and become more active in the Mass by serving as Altar Servers. Altar Servers assist the priest and deacon during Mass. This is a great way for young people to get close to Christ in the Mass and to the very heart of the Church.
