Junior High Youth Ministry


RUSH Winter Retreat

Dear Junior High Students and Parents,

My name is Chrissie Cola and I am the Junior High Faith Formation Coordinator for St. Rita. I would like to welcome you to our Junior High Youth Ministry and Faith Formation Program.  We have a great year planned for all our students!   I am excited and blessed to get to know all of you and your families.

The purpose of this program is to create a setting where Catholic Junior High Teens can come to learn more about our wonderful Catholic faith, grow closer to our Lord, serve others, make great friends, and have fun!  We will be meeting on Sunday evenings for our PSR/Faith Formation program.  We invite you to join us on Sunday evenings for an engaging time learning about our faith. Click here to register.

We will provide many opportunities for your teens to be involved in service and social programs, as well as faith building experiences.  I truly believe in incorporating our faith into every aspect of our lives, so we will intertwine learning about our faith into our social and service projects.  We encourage all Junior High Teens of the parish, whether they attend the day school or public school, to participate in our Youth Ministry Activities.  We have an exciting year planned, so please watch your emails and check back to our website for all the details on our upcoming events.  I hope all of the Junior High teens will want to participate and I look forward to getting to know each of them. If you are interested in having your teen be a part of this, helping out with the program, or have any other questions, please feel free to contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
