The Sisters of St. Rita
REJOICE IN THE COMING OF THE LORD!
A blessed Advent Season to all!
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.
SAVE THE DATE! Join the Sisters of St. Rita for a "Come and See" Weekend, February 6-8, 2015! More information can be found here, and be sure to like our Facebook page, too, for live updates!
