The Sisters of St. Rita
On February 8th we will be blessed with a visit from Sr. Teresa, our Novice Directress, and Sr. Jana Maria, our new Novice!
They are coming from our Motherhouse in Wuerzburg Germany, and staying for about a month with us.
Please join us in praying for their safe travels. We look forward to a joyous and productive month!
We're the Catholic Sisters of Saint Rita, Augustinian women religious, living our vocation in community in Wisconsin at Saint Rita Convent. We live and love our vows of consecrated life, striving to "live together in harmony, as one heart and soul on our way to God." (Rule of Saint Augustine).
As Augustinian women, we strive to "live together in harmony, as one heart and soul on our way to God." (Rule of Saint Augustine) The heart plays a central role in Augustinian spirituality; we cannot live religious life on a superficial level, but rather from the very depth of our heart.
We follow our patroness, Saint Rita of Cascia, by offering our services of caring for those in need: our outreach includes education, health care, assisting the poor, pastoral ministry and counseling, hospice and responding to the needs of today's world.
