St. Rita’s is a vibrant Catholic community located in the beautiful city of Sierra Madre. St. Rita School is committed to providing a Catholic school education to any child who desires one. Our doors are open to those in our Catholic parish community as well as surrounding communities.
At St. Rita School we pride ourselves in giving each student the best education possible therefore setting them up for success in the future. You, as parents, are the primary educators of your children. You have set the initial foundation and we are here to build upon it.
O Holy Patroness of those in need, St. Rita,
whose pleadings before thy Divine Lord are almost irresistible,
who for thy lavishness in granting favors
hast been called the Advocate of the Hopeless and even of the impossible.
St. Rita, so humble, so pure,
so patient and of such compassionate love
for thy Crucified Jesus,
that thou couldst obtain from Him whatsoever thou askest,
on account of which all confidently have recourse to thee expecting,
if not always relief, at least comfort;
be propitious to our petition,
showing thy power with God on behalf of thy suppliant;
be lavish to us,
as thou hast been in so many wonderful cases,
for the greater glory of God,
for the spreading of thine own devotion,
and for the consolation of those who trust in thee.
We promise, if our petition is granted,
to glorify thee by making know thy favor,
to bless and sing thy praises forever.
