Mission Statement
St. Anthony and St. Rita Church is a community of Roman Catholics established in 1954 when the mission became the parish with a resident pastor within the Church of Fall River to collaborate with its Bishop. Nourished through Word and Sacraments, we attend to the Holy Spirit and follow our Lord, Christ Jesus. We give witness to our participation in the Body of Christ by welcoming, evangelizing and serving all whom we encounter, especially the poor.
