From Bishop Kettler and the Diocese of St. Cloud - GOVERNOR WALZ AND MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH'S most recent guidance to faith-based communities is that worshippers should wear face coverings when indoors. It is an important way of preventing those who may have the virus (and not know it) from spreading it to others. Therefore, I ask parishioners to use face coverings when they enter and exit the church as well as during the Mass, removing them only to receive Holy Communion.

Also, Bishop Kettler is continuing the prohibition of receptions and luncheons (for Funerals, Weddings, etc.) for the time being and will revisit this policy at a later date. Parishes may not rent building/hall space or other parish property to third parties for wedding or funeral receptions/luncheons at this time. (Receptions/luncheons may take place at alternative, non-parish venues in the areas that are prepared to host them.)

Weekday Masses:
Mass on Thursday at 9:00 a.m.
First Friday of each month at 9:00 a.m.

Holy Day: To be announced. Reminder: The Catholic bishops of Minnesota have stated that Sundays and Holy Days are not days of obligation during the pandemic protocol. We need to use masks, hand sanitizer and maintain social distancing at all the Masses. To help with the latter we will have the Masses broadcast on the TV in the parish hall so that seating in church will not exceed its protocol limit.

Sacrament of Reconciliation:
Saturday - 3:15 to 3:45 pm and by Appointment.

Stations of the Cross: Saint Rita Parish will have Stations of the Cross at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays during Lent March 3, 10, 17, and 24.

Parish Registration: If you are not registered as a member of our parish family and would like to join, please contact the Parish Office.
