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.


Volunteers from the parish visit the homebound once a month. They are available  for Corporal Works of Mercy (ex. grocery shopping, help in transporting parishioners to doctors’ appointments, or provide a ride to Mass). Assistance depends on volunteer availability. 

If you would like to help with this program call Jane Quinn at 703-549-2561.

For Spiritual Works of Mercy support only (ex. prayers), contact Legion of Mary.
