Saint Rita and the Art of the Passion

Join us for this day-long artists' Lenten retreat as we consider Saint Rita's fervent devotion to the Passion of Christ, which occasioned her receipt of the stigmata. Led by artist Anthony Visco, the day will feature several opportunities for devotion, art analysis and appreciation, and Lenten reflection.

Cost: $25

Limited spaces available. RSVP to or call 215.546.8333
