Mass schedule for St. Rita and St. Stephen Church
The participation of ALL parishioners is essential for the success of this effort.
We are asking parishioners to please consider making a donation to enable us to purchase furniture.
This is an opportunity to take time away from the busyness of life, deepen your connection to Jesus, and socialize with other men in the parish.
The four delegates from Divine Mercy Parish who attended were Msgr. Joe DiSciacca, Carol Aloi, Mike DeGregorio and Megan Zinn.
We are in the process of moving from electric funds transfer (EFT) to an online giving program.
The Youth Ministry is collecting donations during October to be included in care packages for military personnel and college students.
November 10, 2019
The month of November focuses our attention on remembering and thanksgiving. We remember people and events of the past, and are thankful for blessings received and shared.
At the beginning of this month we look back to honor those saintly examples who have gone before us and passed from earthly life to eternal life. We pray for them to be at peace with God in heaven. Please notice that envelopes handed in on All Souls Day have been placed on the altar at St. Stephen and St. Rita. We will remember the names written on these envelopes at Mass during the month of November.
This weekend, Veterans Day, we remember those men and women who have served in our military. We thank them for their service to our country. They are examples of dedication, courage and integrity. We pray also for those who have given their lives during military service, especially those who have died in combat.
At the 9:00am Mass this weekend we will have a blessing of prayer shawls and scarfs that are given t those who have suffered a loss. We will also have a prayer honoring all veterans at all Masses. We do pray for all in service of our country and thank them sincerely.
May this month of remembrance and thanksgiving bring us to a greater awareness of the beauty and wonder of life.
