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.


Men and women who act as hosts to welcome parishioners and visitors to each liturgical Mass/celebration and take up the collection. If interested in being an usher, please contact Dan Verdonik at 703-920-1965, or
