St Rita in the Desert Parish Religious Education program supports parents and guardians in their vital role as the first and foremost teachers of faith for their children. Our program is open to all young people, whether they are Catholic or not, and whether they are attending a Catholic or public school. Together with our pastor, Father Martininez, the staff and volunteers of our Religious Education program seeks to provide opportunities for children, youth and their parents and families to grow in their relationship with Jesus and the Church in order that they may live the Gospel fully at home, at school, at work and in the world. Students will grow in their knowledge of Scripture to help prepare them to receive their sacraments.
