Youth Ministry

The Saint Rita Youth Group Ministry is more than programs and events. Its mission is to provide a Christian community for teens and give them the opportunity to share their unique gifts with the parish and neighboring communities. Throughout the year and under the guidance of Youth Minister Julie Basil, the ministry offers several opportunities for teens to engage in faith, fellowship, and fun! 


Youth Group Kick-Off!

Sunday, August 28th 6-8pm

Teens will meet in Saint Mark Center for Chick-fil-a dinner, head outside for some yard games, and return to Saint Mark at the end of the night for closing activities and pick up. This event is open to all students who will be in grades 8-12 this year. Please register below if you'd like to attend (bring a friend!) and also if you're able to bring a side dish, dessert, or drink to share.
