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.


The St. Rita’s Playgroup welcomes all kids, mothers, grandmothers, moms-to-be, and women caregivers (ex. nannies, babysitters, etc.)!

Group Meet-Ups | Meeting day & time changes depending on coordinator availability. We generally meet at a local playground, gym, community library, etc. Other family friendly social events vary depending on group interests. Please be sure to contact our coordinator for group updates!
