The SIN OF GOSSIP.
A very recent article and statement on EWTN quoted the Holy Father, Pope Francis, who warned against the sin of gossip. He
explained that the Apostles, like all men, were sinners. But one sin they did not commit was the sin of gossip. See our parish
Facebook page for the entire article.

Facilities Committee.
Deacon Dave has started this committee for the purpose of identifying and repairing problems in and around our
parish complex: clogged gutters, weeds in the sidewalks, areas needing cleaning or paint, etc. If you would like
to help out with our maintenance efforts, let Dave know asap.  
Right to Life Sunday.
Commonly referred to as "Pro-Life" Sunday, St. Rita parishioners will be prayed and protested the law in our country that made
abortion legal. On
Sunday, October 6 we prayed the Rosary in church, then processed outside to Page avenue for a silent protest
for one hour. Thanks to all of the protesters. Continue to pray for the cause.
