  •  "I can tell you, in no uncertain terms, I feel so beyond blessed and lucky as                                                  
  • Carrying the banner was actually pretty special. When I walked in, I was on the side near the wall. I walked past most of the teachers that taught me while I've been at St. Rita. Seeing their faces go by me while I was carrying that banner meant a lot to me. I've grown up here. It was really cool."
  • The girls have made life-long friends and learned a great deal- both academically and spiritually.

"As long time parishioners, we love the strong sense of community throughout the church and can see the overlap of this community throughout the school. The engagement of the children both academically and socially was very visible through the tour of each of the classrooms during their regular school day."
