Mission Statement: St. Rita’s youth group is committed to bringing God into your everyday life.  God provides us with strength and guidance.  We are the loving children of God.  We are propelled by God to community service and helping people in need as ministers to our faith.

Everyone is welcome and invited to serve and live their faith through lifework.  We respect each other and the talents God has given.  Participation is encouraged and leadership is developed and faith based.
