Pastor’s News Notes 3/26/2017


On behalf of my family and from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU for the many expressions of condolence, offering of prayers, and support that you have sent our way at this time of losing my dear sister-in-law, Connie.  It was most comforting to my nephews, Jeff and Brian, and the whole extended family to share that Fr. Bill’s parishioners and mine here at St. Rita were holding us up at Mass and in prayers of the faithful during these days.  Connie’s holy and sacred remains were placed next to those of her husband, my brother Ron, after a beautiful celebration of the Holy Eucharist in thanksgiving for her life, at her parish of Holy Trinity in El Dorado Hills CA.  God bless all of you for your goodness and kindness.
