Habit of St. Rita

Our deepest gratitude the Sisters of Cascia in italy for their most generous gift of the replica of the habit worn by our patroness, Saint Rita of Cascia.  

Enclosed in this display is a religious habit which clothed the incorrupt body of Saint Rita, making it an authentic relic.

The Habit can now be viewed in the Lower Shrine area during normal Shrine hours.

Fr. Joseph Genito, the Friars and the whole of St. Rita of Cascia Shrine members would like to express our sincerest thanks to Fr. Richard Cannulli, O.S.A., Anthony Visco, Sam Bruno and Joe Tierno for their work in the design, construction and display of this most precious gift and to Fr. Dan McLaughlin for his photographs of the installation.
