“Come Share Our Hope.”
Welcome to St. Rita’s “Come Share Our Hope.” The Church of St. Rita is a church of the Diocese of Fall River in Marion, Massachusetts, USA. Located in the heart of Marion, St. Rita of Cascia Parish was established as a parish in 1972. The church was dedicated already in 1916. St. Rita Parish is a welcoming faith community, building the Kingdom of God through worshiping the Lord, sharing the Word and generously using our talents and treasures to serve others. Presently, St Rita operates as one Parish with St Anthony, Mattapoisett. St. Rita’s Church offers a quiet respite for reflection with it’s beautiful woodwork and stained-glass windows befitting a quaint New England village. From 1999-2000 Martino Stained Glass Studio was commissioned to design, create, and install 14 large windows depicting the life of Jesus. Many of the windows include aquatic elements fitting for the coastal environment of Marion, Massachusetts. Click here for pictures of some of the stained-glass windows.
