Exceptional Needs Christmas Party

The Exceptional Needs Christmas Party is a fun-filled day and an opportunity for our parish community to welcome our friends with exceptional needs and their families! Out of an abundance of caution, the 2021 Exceptional Needs party was transformed into a drive-through Polar Express. Families "boarded the train" and met with parish "elves" along the route. This year, we're thrilled to be back in person!

All of our friends with exceptional needs are invited to a very special

Breakfast with St. Nicholas
Saturday, December 2 from 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Saint Rita School, Mazanec Hall

Admission is free and includes a lunch of pizza, salad, plus other yummy goodies! Attendees can drop a note in Santa's mailbox, sing along to Christmas carols, enjoy arts and crafts, and have their photo taken with St. Nicholas! 


The Exceptional Needs Christmas party is one of Saint Rita Parish's most favorite events! We love welcoming our friends with exceptional needs to our community and sharing the joy of this most wonderful season with their families!

There are plenty of opportunities for parishioners and teens to become involved. We need LOTS of Elves to make this event memorable. If you would like to participate, please register below.

Can't participate at the party in person? It's okay, you can still help! Please consider donating to our event via the Amazon link.
