A city set on a hill…
You are the light of the world. These words of Jesus from Matthew 5:14 have eternal impact. As a parish family, we believe that we are called to be the light of the world. We believe that we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ to our neighbors and our community. We are the light of the world and we show that through worship, fellowship, education, caring for our earth, and serving our community.
We, the Parishioners of Saint Rita Parish,
are a Catholic Community of Faith of Rockford, Illinois,
who reflect and deepen Christ's presence among us
by celebrating the Eucharist, witnessing the Gospel,
sharing with one another, and serving the people around us,
using our stewardship gifts of time, talent and treasure.
