Rev. Richard K. Burchell Educational Fund


The Rev. Richard K. Burchell Educational Fund celebrates the legacy of our fourth pastor, Fr. Burchell (2005-2020) and his passion for Catholic education. Each year, Saint Rita Parish will award a $500 scholarship to an 8th grade student. To be considered for the Rev. Richard K. Burchell Scholarship, an applicant must be a parishioner or Saint Rita School student, a current 8th grader, and must be committed to continuing his/her education at a Catholic high school in the fall.




Congratulations to Ryan Winterich, our 2022 Award Recipient! Ryan will attend Benedictine High School. God's blessings on you, Ryan!
