Saint Rita Catholic Church

Saint Rita, come to my aid! Beautiful rose born from the Savior’s thorns, Lead me far from anger and hate; Guide my heart on peaceful paths with charity to all.

Since 1914, our parish has served the spiritual needs of this Alexandria, Virginia, community. Please join us, as together we worship God and grow in love for one another under the protection of our patroness, Saint Rita of Cascia.


LEGION OF MARY | LEGIO MARIAE

Blessed is she who believed | Beata quae credidit | Luke 1:45

Founded in Dublin, Ireland on September 7, 1921 by Frank Duff, Legion of Mary is a world-wide apostolate organization of lay Catholic men and women.  The mission of Legion of Mary is to lead people to Jesus Christ by protecting, honoring and loving Mary, Mother of God. Through prayer, spiritual work and guidance of priests, members learn to foster greater knowledge, faith, hope and love of Mary and Jesus.
