Start your New Year Discerning with us on a "Come and See" Weekend Feb. 6-8, 2015

Pondering whether you're called to religious life?

There's no better way to discern a religious vocation than taking those first steps...inquire!  And if life in community with a contemplative prayer life and an active apostolate sounds interesting, than give us a call at the Sisters of St. Rita!

In addition to calling, you'll want to visit as well--and from February 6-8, 2015, we're opening our doors for discerning women to visit us here at St. Rita's Convent in Racine, Wisconsin, and "try on" religious life for a weekend!

It will be a casual, hands-on, and informative weekend to learn

Meet Our New Novice, Sister Mary Brigid!

On March 9, 2014, the Sisters of St. Rita welcomed Sister Mary Brigid into the novitiate.  Welcomed in a Vespers ceremony at the community’s convent in Racine, Wisconsin, she will continue in her formation there. 

During the ceremony, Sister Teresa, our Novice Directress from the Motherhouse in Wuerzburg, Germany, presented Sister Mary Brigid with the Rule of St. Augustine, the community's Constitutions, and the final document of the community's last General Chapter.
